For many tourists Alberobello is part of a larger itinerary that includes a number of Apulian sites. Thanks to the presence of a strong tangible and intangible heritage, those who decide to visit our land can organise multi destination holidays embracing sea, nature, art, culture and food tradition. This is the reason why in summer many tourists usually opt for hotels and accommodation facilities on coastal areas, and from these centres they visit inland towns and attractions.
Not far from Alberobello, there is one of the most characteristic towns of Apulian coast, the town of Polignano a Mare, which in 2014 has obtained, for the seventh year in a row, the blue flag for its services and natural environment.
If we had to pick one adjective to describe Polignano, we would definitely choose the word “elegant”.
Surrounded by a breath-taking crystal-clear sea, Polignano served as an inspiration for many poets and artists. It has also been the birth place of one of the most popular Italian singer, Domenico Modugno, whose bronze open-armed statue stands in a square of the city centre.
The strong connection between land and sea depicts a very picturesque panorama. The coastal line is bordered by beaches, small bays and rock cliffs.
The most ancient nucleus of the town is located on a rock spur, with houses overhanging natural sea caves. It is very interesting to visit the old town, which combines charming, white-washed streets with beautiful old churches.
An #Alberobelloexperience suggestion? Spend a day of your holiday in Polignano. In the morning you can enjoy the wonderful sea, while in the afternoon you can have a walk through the streets of the old town, tasting a delicious ice cream. What about the evening? Do not lose the chance to have dinner in restaurants with stunning sea views.
