Polignano a Mare

This unforgettable beach destination offers visitors an ideal mixture of two worlds — an ancient city and breathtakingly beautiful beaches. Polignano a Mare is the name of the town located on Italy’s southern Adriatic coast, but it’s also known for its gorgeous white-pebble beaches and coves with crystal clear waters. Visitors can sunbathe, swim, or enjoy the magnificent views from San Vito Abbey’s Romanesque Church overlooking the Adriatic. Truly the best of both worlds await at this unassuming Italian beach destination.
