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.
The town is virtually dead all winter, but becomes something of a weekend hot spot for city dwellers in summer. Justin Timberlake and Jessica Beal chose the tiny seaside town of Savelletri di Fasano, 25 km (16 miles) south, for their 2012 wedding.
