About Polignano a Mare

When travelers imagine the Italian coast, they may be thinking of stucco buildings perched on chalky cliffs, overlooking a dazzling sea. In fact, they may be thinking of Polignano a Mare. This town along the Adriatic Coast is just 30 minutes from the larger city of Bari, and is a perfect jumping point for exploring the area. Experience beautiful Puglia in one of our Polignano a Mare vacation rentals. 

Due to its beautiful scenery and access to other charming towns, the area is a popular tourist destination—which means there will be plenty for you to do and see. The Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II is home to the beautiful church of Santa Maria Assunta, consecrated in the 13th century. You’ll also find plenty of cafes where you can sit outside and enjoy watching the passers-by as you sip espresso or a glass of wine—it’s all just minutes from your Polignano a Mare vacation rental.

Or you can spend an afternoon in Fondazione Museo Pino Pascale museum, where you can brush up on your contemporary Italian art. But artwork isn’t limited to the indoors, here: the streets and buildings are lined with hand-written poems of Guido Il Flâneur. The most famous can be found on a tucked-away staircase in a quiet street, and is worth a visit. And of course, the famous rocky beach of Cala Porto is not to be missed, where the brilliant seas meet pebbled shores.
