The historical lanes were mostly smart and cleaned up.
Local people live their lives almost communally, with doors open, women making pasta in the doorways and lots of comings and goings.

Between the heart of the Old Town and the sea is Bari's most famous church, the eleventh-century Romanesque Basilica di San Nicola.
Ostuni is one of the most stunning cities in southern Italy famous for the dazzling effect of its whitewashed houses.

Polignano a Mare is famous throughout the world for three things.
First of all is, as hinted at above, cliff diving.
Second is its outstanding ice-cream, which you really cannot afford to miss on a hot summer’s evening.
