Romantic Polignano and Volare’s Origin

Romantic Polignano and Volare’s Origin

Discover Polignano, one of the most romantic places in Apulia and also the birthplace of Mr. Volare – Domenico Modugno.

Upon arrival in Monopoli you will be met by the guide and travel by motor coach for approximately 30 minutes to arrive at Polignano a Mare. The walking tour begins at the square with a bronze statue dedicated to Domenico Modugno welcoming you with his open arms. Just a few steps and the first breathtaking view is of the marine caves. The sea has created hundreds of deep and high marine caves, whose tops have been paved and transformed into amazing terraces. The result is a very original seafront where you will enjoy panoramic views over the shore and the surrounding coastal villages.

Follow the guide as you walk down to the bottom of the cliff and take a stroll through the ancient riverbed observing many people sunbathing during the Summer. The guide will next escort you to the town center, walking down winding little streets covered with flowers, observing the typical Mediterranean atmosphere of Polignano. It’s considered as one of the most romantic places in Apulia, built at the top of a natural spur and surrounded by marine caves.

In addition, Polignanon was also home to Mr. Domenico Modugno who wrote his famous song NEL BLU DIPINTO DI BLU, known better to many as the VOLARE song. On this walking tour you will understand the reason why he wrote his song here and have free time to explore on your own. A refreshment stop is included at a famous local bar for a choice of either a cool “gelato” or "Caffè Speciale", a coffee drink made with milk cream and a little bit of liqueur – delicious. Following the free time, you’ll return by coach to the SeaDream yacht waiting for you in Monopoli.
