Polignano a Mare: 1.5-Hour Boat Cave Tour
- Private group
- Duration: 1.5 hours
Your tour lasts about 1.5 hours with departure and arrival at the small port of San Vito (Abbazia di San Vito and Polignano a Mare). Included is a visit to the main caves, with a break to swim in one of the most evocative places on the Polignano's coast. You'll also be treated to a tasty Prosecco-based aperitif which will be offered by the crew. The itinerary is divided into stages and includes the visit of the main caves. These caves include Grotta Palazzese, Grotta Santa Caterina, Grotta Chiari di Luna, Grotta delle Rondinelle, Cala Paura/Grottone, Grotta Azzurra, Statua “Domenico Modugno”, and Grotta Piana, just to name a few. Each boat has a length of 6.5 meters with a capacity of 8 people for each boat. The boat has a parasol, and is equipped with ladders and floats for both adults and children.
This boat tour was a perfect way to be on the water, see Polignano a Mare and just have a tiny excursion.
Polignano a Mare is the ideal place to plunge into uncontaminated waters and immerse yourself in the marine environment. Known as the “Pearl of the Adriatic”, this small town is just over 30 km (18.5 miles) from Bari. After a brief practical lesson, get ready to begin paddling along the coast. Enjoy the scenic coastline as you explore in a stand-up paddleboard. Discover one of Puglia's most beautiful coastal stretches, peppered with hidden inlets and charming sandy bays. Crystal clear waters and cliffs pitted with caves carved by the sea give Polignano a Mare its uniqueness. Do not miss the opportunity for a dip in these spectacular turquoise waters.
Polignano a Mare is a picturesque city, thanks to the presence of the blue sea in contrast with the white of the houses. Polignano is famous for two reasons: it was the birthplace of Domenico Modugno, the singer of the famous song Volare, and also for the Red Bull cliff diving, during which experienced divers leap from the famous terrace. A local tour guide will take you to visit the historic center during a pleasant walk. It will show you the history of the city as well as the daily life of its citizens and its traditions. During the walk you will have the opportunity to see the art of churches and buildings, to walk among the alleys adorned with flowers and to read the poems written on the faces of the buildings.
