This statue has been built in front of the sea so it's little damage by the wind and other weathering but once you are below it you start feeling the atmosphere that has inspired the Italian singer. The city around does the rest.

It's great people-watching at this statue, which is in a very lively square. The statue itself is quite impressive. Polignano is such a small town, it's easy to see all the sites... and this is worth the walk.

This is such a fun place to stop and enjoy being in Italy. Being Americans, we kind of stood out in the crowd as most of the tourists here seem to be Italians enjoying a day at the sea. Everyone was friendly and happy to...More

A tribute to the singer born in the city. Located next to the see, infront the stairs to go down the water, rocks. Great photo opportunities there and you can see the old town on the cliff.
