Polignano a Mare

With a well-preserved, whitewashed old town perched on limestone cliffs overlooking the Adriatic, Polignano a Mare makes an atmospheric base for exploring the surrounding area.

It leapt to fame in 2013, when the cast of the popular soap Beautiful descended to film some scenes on the Scalinata di Grottone, where there is also a statue of the town’s most famous son, Domenico Modugno, author of the song "Volare."
