This little city is fantastic! In the old town you habe these little alleys and old houses and to the seaside lots of balconies to view the sea from the cliff. We have been there by sunset after a small thunderstorm. Absolutely spectacular views!

Polignano is well worth a visit just to see how the town is sited in and on the cliffs. It is very touristy, but that is because it is swamped by tourists who want to see it. The old town is much like all the...More

It' s easy, the main entrance to the town goes forward to a parking, there are carabinieris guiding the tourists to the parking. And then, a little walk and you are just there.
