What to do in Polignano a mare in autumn
Are you still undecided whether to visit Polignano a Mare in autumn? We'll help you: here's an exhaustive list of everything you can do while staying in the city (excluding the sea).
1) Visit the Pino Pascali museum
Polignano boasts a splendid museum of contemporary art in an incredibly evocative place overlooking the sea. The museum, founded in 1988 thanks to a bequest from the family of numerous works by the Apulian artist, has gradually expanded with new acquisitions, becoming a true local pearl. For all art lovers it is an essential destination.
2) Visit the Mother Church
The church, which stands on the remains of an old pagan temple, has a 23 meter high bell tower and a façade that combines Gothic with Baroque. The interiors, finely decorated, the paintings and sculptures present make it unique.
3) Trekking towards San Vito Abbey
Right at the entrance to the city, a three kilometer long cycle path begins, also perfect for those who want to do a trekking route up to the wonderful and evocative Abbey of San Vito.
4) Costa Ripagnola
With a little good will, you can continue the route (on foot or by bike) up to Costa Ripagnola, a stretch about three kilometers long affected by the FAI, where remains dating back to the Paleolithic have been found. The area, uncontaminated and surrounded by greenery and the sea, is the perfect culmination of a bucolic walk.
5) Taste the Special Coffee
Autumn is definitely the best time of the year to taste this drink invented right in Polignano a mare. A delicacy made of cream, coffee, orange zest and amaretto (made with sweet almonds) that warms the chest and nourishes the heart.
