One of the most touristy and beautiful places in Puglia. Last post on summer, I swear.
One of the most popular and typical summer destinations in Puglia: Polignano a mare. I wrote more about the place here when I visited during the winter. This time we went during the height of summer, which was both great and maybe a bit of a mistake. It was CROWDED. Like I can’t move forward kind of crowded. And with a stroller, it was a challenge.
The main attraction was the beach of course. It looked glorious. I would have loved to come one day to swim and spend some time, but with all the crowd, I thought it wouldn’t have been such a great idea with a little toddler.
이태리 남부의 가장 유명한 곳이라고 해도 과언이 아닌 Polignano a mare. 사람이 너무 많아서 약간 움직이기 힘들었지만 다음에 아예 몇일 놀러와도 괜찮을 곳. 특히 해변! 사람이 너무 득실득실하려나.
Food in Puglia is known to be some of the best even in Italy, but if you are visiting Polignano a mare, you need to stop by the famous Super Mago del Gelo. Their specialty is gelato but they have a unique beverage called caffe speciale and is a concoction of espresso, liquor and lemon, complete with the lemon peel. It’s very strong and very different, so if you’re good with liquors or like espresso-related cocktails, give it a try.
젤라또야 이탈리아에서 워낙 유명하지만 이곳에 오면 꼭 들러서 먹어봐야할 것이 있는데 바로 caffe speciale. 직역하면 특별한 커피라는 뜻인데 에스프레소에 강한 리큐어를 넣고 레몬도 넣어서 뭔가 에스프레소 칵테일 느낌? 그냥 가볍게 마시기엔 약간 강한감이 없지 않아 있지만 일단 왔으면 요거 추천.
