Polignano a Mare is a small town few km far from Bari, the main city in Apulia, a region in South italy.

It’s easy to reach Polignano, in fact Bari has an international airport with low cost flights.

You might consider to visit one of the most amazing town in italy. I’ll never give up with this: italy is not Venice, Florence, roma…

There is so much to see, every little town has something to offer and South italy, even more, in terms of history, coastal and seaside beauties, out-standing food, good wine…

If ancient greeks and romans used to spend their vacation in South italy, well…there should be some reasons!!!! :)

11707583_581683345307686_7064910204274478781_nPolignano a mare is ideal for a day trip, for a weekend or even for a short-term spring/summer holiday.

It is mostly about the sea, relax and food.

The city itself, the old part, stays on the scenic cliffs. You can find one of the most amazing restaurant in Europe, built inside the limestone rock, with a natural view of the sea.

Imagine a deep blue sea, white small houses in mediterranean style and warm sun welcoming you every day, this is Polignano a mare!

Moreover there are 2 things that make Polignano a mare even more UNIQUE:

po-Best ice cream, ever! Believe me!

Everybody knows that italian ice cream is the best and there should be a place where it is better than everywhere else. This place is Bar Turismo, in Polignano!

Believe it or not, in an old, small, un-trendy and (not intentionally) ‘vintage’ bar, you will find a man who will serve you the most delicious gelato on earth!

Ice cream here is prepared with the original ARTISANAL recipe, not with industrial powders ( as in 99,99% of other premises). Few ingredients:  milk, eggs, sugar, adding the main ingredients, according to the final taste, chocolate, nuts, coffee…

Long story-short, find this little bar, just before entering the old town, ask for chocolate and nuts ice-cream, with home-made coffee cream. Eat it inside the bar or nearby. Now if you are brave enough, leave without ordering another one! I’m sure you’ll be happy to find yourself weak and go inside for a new gelato!🙂

Could you tell me the most famous and well known italian song?

‘Nel Blu dipinto di blu, (VOLARE)’ most likely it is the song that everybody associate with italy (over 22 milions copies sold all over the world). Well, the author and singer of the song is Domenico Modugno, born in Polignano (9/1/1928), one of the best italian music artist, ever.

He was (together with Renato Carosone) the only italian singer able to sell his songs to the american market, in the original italian version. I don’t remember any other post with a music video, this time I have to do it🙂

Please enjoy these incredibly nice songs, I’m sure they will bring a sudden happiness:

Nel blu dipinto di Blu     Malarazza  Vecchio Frack  Tu si’ ‘na cosa grande

If it wasn’t enough…
