A day trip to Polignano a Mare

If you are looking for a day trip from Monopoli, you can’t go wrong with Polignano a Mare.  Located on the Adriatic Sea, and only one train stop away from Monopoli, the town is stunningly beautiful.

The town is perched on top of limestone cliffs riddled with caves.  Apparently, in the summer, you can watch people cliff diving, although we didn’t see any of that in November.

The town is also known as being the home of Domenico Modugno, the guy behind that ear worm of a song “Volare.”  (You are welcome.)

And, if you are lucky, you might even spot a cat or two sunning on the rocks.

Lisa has a degree in biology and another in law and has spent the last 20 years working as a patent litigator. She is a voracious reader of young adult dystopian fiction and watches far too much bad tv. She loves pretty much anything to do with zombies, and doesn’t think there is anything weird about setting an alarm at 6 am on a weekend to stumble to a pub to watch her beloved Chelsea boys. Robert has had many professions, including a chef, a salesman, an IT guy and most recently, a stay at home dog dad. He speaks Italian and hopes to learn Spanish on this trip. He loves nothing more than a day spent sailing, hopes to do more scuba diving, and rues the day he introduced Lisa to football (i.e., soccer).
