Polignano a Mare gets recognition as 'world's most welcoming city'

Great news coming for Puglia and for Italian tourism in general: Polignano a Mare beat off competition from 220 countries to win first place in the Traveller Review Award 2023, which crowned it the "most welcoming city in the world."
This is a very prestigious award, given by Booking.com to the facilities and territories that are committed to providing their guests with excellent hospitality in all seasons of the year.c

But what contributes to making Polignano the most welcoming city in the world?
As pointed out by its Mayor Vito Carrieri this town nestled on the Adriatic coast between Mola di Bari and Monopoli offers much to tourists of all ages and backgrounds thanks to its innate vocation for hospitality, which aims to make every guest feel at home.

In addition to the kindness of its inhabitants, Polignano captivates visitors with a unique mix of natural attractions, cultural events and traditions that are lost in time.
Built on a rocky outcrop overlooking the Adriatic Sea, Polignano makes you fall in love at first sight: walking through its paved alleys, admiring the small white squares with flowered balconies, watching the view from the top of the rocks that frame the town while enjoying a focaccia barese gives unique emotions.

When one arrives at the statue of Domenico Modugno, its most illustrious citizen, one also understands why Polignano a Mare has become an important cultural destination, home to concerts and events in every season.
In fact, the favorable climate is another element that makes Polignano a perfect place to visit at any time of year and contributes to making it the most welcoming city in the world.
In such a context, accommodation facilities have equipped themselves, with the aim of immersing every visitor in the authentic atmosphere of the town.

Many hotels and guesthouses have been carved out of renovated houses in the historic center, so guests are guaranteed a quality stay in a relaxed setting.
If satisfying the eyes in Polignano is very easy, delighting the palate certainly creates no problems: the town offers a wide choice of establishments in which to taste fresh fish specialties and other delicacies typical of Apulian gastronomy. Whether it is a tomato focaccia to be enjoyed on the beach or a romantic dinner with a sea view in Polignano you will find the solution for you.

After describing all its magic, no doubt remains: Polignano a Mare is truly the most welcoming city in the world.
