"Volare oh oh
Cantare oh oh oh
No wonder my happy heart singsYour love has given me wings
Nel blu, dipinto di blu
Felice di stare lassu."
Cala Porto is a small, pebbly beach surrounded by limestone cliffs and cliffhanging homes. It would make anyone's heart sing when viewed from the Roman bridge. The beach, also known as Lama Monachile, gets crowded during the summer months and the sea is dotted with bobbing yachts.
This shopping and dining street looks empty. Its mid afternoon in late January and the whole town is taking a break.
Whitewashed houses and spotless streets welcome visitors to Polignano.
Here is the link to Modugno's rendition of Nel Blu Dipinto di Blu (Volare).
Refrain from Nel Blu:
Volare, oh oh
Cantare, oh oh oh
Nel blu dipinto de blu
Felice di stare lassu.
