Set in a bridge of the ancient Via Traiana, the Lama Monachile, Polignano a Mare offers a breathtaking view. At the foot of the bridge stands out, as in a postcard, its most famous beach, freely accessible for a swim in crystal clear waters, from which you can enjoy a unique view of the ancient village perched on the cliff overlooking the sea. You don’t want to miss some very particular points of the town, real balconies overlooking the sea from which you can witness unforgettable scenarios. With a full program of summer events, as well as for its landscapes and culture, Polignano is also known for its artisan ice cream parlors. Birthplace of the great singer Domenico Modugno, during the month of July its cliff becomes the scene of a unique event: an international competition of acrobatic dives, the Red Bull Cliff Diving.
About the tour
The visit of Polignano by foot to discover the hamlet’s gems is recommended for those who love calm and prefer to appreciate all the details invisible to a quick eye. All PlacenPeople organizers who will accompany you on cultural tours are licensed professional tour guides.
You will meet with the guide at the agreed point and time, and the tour will start. If you (or your group) are the only participants, you can propose the guide a particular point and time.
Since the visit of Polignano takes about half a day, if you want to enrich your trip with the discovery of another unique local pearl, we recommend you to explore one of our tours to 2 locations, combining to the poetry of Polignano the magic of Alberobello, home of the famous characteristic stone buildings, the trulli, or Monopoli, with its majestic Cathedral.
Costs (and inclusions)
The participation fee for a cultural (walking) tour is € 30 per person and includes the activity of the tour guide, while it doesn’t include meals or anything else.
Some community organizers may indicate slightly different prices depending on the services offered.
Duration and Period
The guided tours of Polignano have a duration of about 2 hours, and almost all the organizers leave freedom of choice on the departure time. Available all year round.
Tours generally start with groups of 2 to 25 participants, but many organizers are flexible and also start with one person, or with groups larger than 25. On tours where you visit only one city, you meet directly on site: the organizer will indicate the meeting point immediately after booking, often agreeing this point with the guest.
Alternatively, if you choose a two-stage day tour (check tours of 2 locations) our organizers are available to offer – often free of charge – a ride by car (in the case of a few people) or to organize transport by bus or minibus (in case of groups).
