Polignano a Mare walking tour with Special Coffee tasting

The quaint old town with its medieval structures and the breath-taking sea views make this a location worthy of a visit if you are in Puglia. The statute of great singer Domenico Modugno is the meeting point with local guide, It's fun to take pictures with on the background with the monument, unforgettable songs Volare (Nel blu dipinto di blu) The view around the statue is amazing! We’ll visit the historical centre, the heart of a lovely restored ancient village on the Adriatic Coast, the entrance is via an old archway into narrow flag paved street with charming shops and cafes. Downtown is just a matter of culture and history, amazing nice buildings and very special atmosphere, It is a labyrinth of treats, old houses all linked to each other, little squares and all standing huddled together over a series of caves fringed on the sea below. There is a cave restaurant which is gorgeous and outside the entrance to the citadel there is a little cove surrounded by these homes built high on the rocks. Down in the cove is a tiny sandy beach, rocks and some restaurants. The dramatic setting on cliffs above the sea provides a backdrop for the stone buildings and winding streets trod by generations for thousands of years. The town's rocky beach sits at the bottom of a small canyon with sheltered swimming in the azure blue Adriatic. A great place to slow down, unwind and enjoy La Dolce Vita. Polignano a Mare always surprise. Finally the sea and coastline with the very nice clifs makes this town very special to visit whatever time of the year. The tour ends with a tasting of typical "Special Coffee" (caffè speciale) a mix of espresso, lemon, cream and amaretto ... .amazing!
