Day 1 - 19 Apr 2022
Content: We arrived in the early afternoon. Tip: there’s a big free parking nearby the station.
Content: First things first: we had lunch in the famous Pescaria. Three friends started the concept of (raw) seafood fast food here and it became a must thereafter. Now they have around 10 restaurant all over Italy and that’s one of my favourite places to eat. We had mixed fried seafood, their famous “cacio, pepe e cozze” and a sandwich with raw shrimp tartare, carrot chips, pistachios and stracciatella passion fruit flavoured. Amazing!
Content: We had their famous “caffè speciale” (special recipe for a warm coffee including lemon zest, amaretto liquor and whipped cream).
Content: We started touring around the small streets of the Old Town and found the first balcony facing the cliff. Polignano is known for having quotes about love and the sea written on the walls all over the city.
Content: Here there’s a stunning (but expensive) restaurant inside the cave.
Content: Then we moved to the bridge to admire the view on the most famous beach of Polignano.
Content: We chilled a bit at the beach, there’s an immersive peace down there and the waves were playing the best music.
Content: Another must is to see Domenico Modugno’s statue (the author of the worldwide famous “Nel blu dipinto di blu” song) but they were renovating the square. We walked a bit further and discovered another amazing spot.
