Photos and the City

destination photography & travel

It´s just a very short drive from San Vito to Pogliano but it took me a while to find some parking, the whole of Italy had the ides to spend their sunday in the town above the cliffs with the famous beach, which was really crowded. But as soon as one got lost in the narrow alleys most of the other people started to disappera.

It flourished under the Romans and was important enough for Emperor Trajan to direct his Via Traiana, built between 108-110 AD, through the town. Remains of this road include a bridge at Lama Monachile, just north of the historic centre. (thethinkingtraveller)

It´s a nice walk alround the tiny old town and even a little further into the not that old town, hello white buildings (again). There are a lot of caves in and around Pogliano, one even became a (very fancy) restaurant. Doing a boattour around the city must be amazing (next time!)

Maybe you should even sing an old (ESC) classic while wandering around town or enjoying the view from one of the terraces: “ Nel blu dipinto di blu…. Volare..!“ – Domenico Modugno is a son of Pogliano a mare! And singing is way less dangerous than the very popular cliff diving!pogliano al mare, puglia, italy, travel, photography, ursula schmitz pogliano al mare, puglia, italy, travel, photography, ursula schmitzpogliano al mare, puglia, italy, travel, photography, ursula schmitzpogliano al mare, puglia, italy, travel, photography, ursula schmitzpogliano al mare, puglia, italy, travel, photography, ursula schmitz pogliano al mare, puglia, italy, travel, photography, ursula schmitzpogliano al mare, puglia, italy, travel, photography, ursula schmitz pogliano al mare, puglia, italy, travel, photography, ursula schmitz
