Polignano a Mare / Полиньяно а Маре

balconyPolignano a Mare is situated out of Salento, but still in Apulia, and it is too beautiful and enchanting to not be mentioned in here 🙂 Located near Bari, it is one of the favorite holiday destinations not only for Apulians, but also for the tourists from the whole world.

They are like balconies overlooking the Adriatic sea all along the coast of Polignano a Mare, full of marvelous colorful sea caves. Continue reading
