#TravelPost – Polignano a Mare, on the cliffs over the Adriatic Sea


EN: Especially on a warm summer’s day Polignano a Mare is an amazing place to visit, if you adore the seaside and cannot live without the captivating power of the water.

From Bucharest you have direct flight to Bari (see here) and then you are only one train away to Polignano a Mare (2.5 euro ticket, one way).

RO: In special intr-o zi calduta de vara Polignano a Mare este un oras minunat de vizitat, daca adori malul marii si nu poti rezista puterii captivante a apei.

Din Bucuresti ai zbor direct catre Bari (detalii aici), iar de acolo esti la distanta de 30 de minute cu trenul de Polignano a Mare (2,5 euro biletul, dus).

EN: Main attractions in Polignano a Mare – For sure the pictures speak for themselves, but here are some highlights of what you can visit in Polignano a Mare:

1. Cala Porto (also known as Lama Monachile). It is one of the most photographed beaches on the coast. A little small white pebbles beach and crystal clear waters. Surrounded by cliffs with houses build right up to the edge, form a bay.

RO: Principalele atractii din Polignano a Mare – Cu siguranta imaginile vorbesc de la sine, dar iata cateva locuri pe care le poti vizita in Polignano a Mare:

1. Cala Porto (cunoscut si sub numele de Lama Monachile). Este una dintre cele mai fotografiate plaje de pe costa. Are o micuta plaja acorperita cu pietricele albe si apa curata ca lacrima. Stancile de jur imprejur, cu cladiri construite chiar pana in margini, formeaza un mic golfulet.

EN: You have an amazing view of this small  bay from the old Roman bridge near by.

RO: In apropierea micutului golf este un vechi pod roman, de pe care ai o priveliste incredibila.

EN: 2. Statue of Domenico Modugno

Maybe the name of the artist is not very familiar, but the song “Nel blu dipinto di blu – Volare” for sure is. Domenico Modugno was a famous Italian singer, songwriter, actor, guitarist, and even a member of the Italian Parliament, born in Polignano. The statue has a special something that makes you sing instantly Vooolare 😉

RO: 2. Statuia lui Domenico Modugno

Poate numele artistului nu va spune nimic, dar cantecul “Nel blu dipinto di blu – Volare” sigur va suna cunoscut. Domenico Modugno a fost un faimos artist italian, cantaret, compozitor, actor, chitarist si chiar membru al Parlamentului italian, nascut in Polignano. Statuia are ceva special, care te face instantaneu sa canti Vooolare 😉

EN: 3. Grotta Palazzese, the famous cave restaurant

For the gourmets among you looking for an amazing dining experience you could try Grotta Palazzese. Hidden within the cliffs, the restaurant is openend since the 1700s and has a spectacular terrace overlooking the Adriatic Sea. But is not for those on budget, so I had an octopus burger at a seafood restaurant Pescaria.

RO: 3. Grotta Palazzese, faimosul restaurant in grota 

Pentru cei gurnamzi, in cautarea unei experiente unice puteti incerca Grotta Palazzese. Ascuns intre stanci, restaurantul este deschis din anii 1700 si are o terasa senzationala cu vedere unica spre marea Adriatica. Dar nu este pentru cei care calatoresc low cost, asa ca eu am ales un burger cu caracatita la un restaurant cu fructe de mare, Pescaria.

EN: 4. Centro Storico Polignano a Mare

Stunningly beautiful, just stroll and explore the streets, walls, doors and windows of Polignano’s centro storico, they are pure poetry.

RO: 4. Centrul istoric Polignano a Mare

Uluitor si cuceritor. Trebuie doar sa te plimbi, sa descoperi stradutele, peretii, fiecare usa si fereastra din centrul vechi, sunt pura poezie.

Go discover the world! Kisses, Migdelia.
