A local tour guide will take you to visit the historic center during a pleasant walk. It will show you the history of the city as well as the daily life of its citizens and its traditions. During the walk you will have the opportunity to see the art of churches and buildings, to walk among the alleys adorned with flowers and to read the poems written on the faces of the buildings.

What people are saying about Polignano a Mare

It was a really nice trip. We were 10 people on the boat and did the trip with our kids (6 and 4). Ideal length of the trip. We were there at 3 p.m., of course there are many boats in the caves.

I definitely recommend it to anyone! After visiting the caves with nice guides, we could jump into the water, then we got a snack and prosecco. Unforgettable impressions:)

It was great, even if the weather was not great, we learned a lot about the caves and were able to swim in them before having an aperitif Thank you

Fantastic !! good and beautiful attraction with very funny guide and crazy (in a good way) captain!
