After lunch you’ll go to Polignano a Mare and take a leisurely stroll around the historical centre ‘centro Storico. The tiny old town, reached through the Porta Vecchia gate, combines charming, white-washed streets with beautiful old churches. It has quait winding street and panoramic terraces overlooking the beautiful Adriatic coastline. The town is also famous for its amazing ice cream, which you will of course have the opportunity to sample today.
The second thing that Polignano is famous for is it towering coastal cliffs and picturesque sea caves. You will take a cruise passing by several caves, pause to snap photos and admire these unique formations, and there will be time for a refreshing dip in the crystal clear water.
Then its time for the first cooking class back at the masseria, in which you’ll learn how to make delicious fresh pasta and focaccia. You’ll Learn the secret of simple yet flavourful recipes for sauces made with fresh local ingredients.
All of this will create the feast for your evening meal today.
Rest of the day at leisure.
