A return to the place where houses rise from the cliffs

This event will be LIVE on July 23 from 15.45 local time (13.45 GMT) on www.redbullcliffdiving.com, Red Bull TV and Facebook.

Cliff diving's best return to the European cliff diving hub in July! The year's third stop in the very south of Italy, in Polignano a Mare, will see athletes propelling themselves into water from a venue where cliffs are the foundation of everyday life, with the town itself perched on the precipice. Close to 70,000 spectators won't miss the action, as this place not only means mozzarella, delicious raw fish and ice cream, but people of all ages fascinated by jumping into the water.

Hosting the World Series for the fifth time after 2009, 2010 as well as 2015 and last year, this place probably provides the most unusual venue: the take-off spot is a private roof-top terrace and the male and female athletes have to enter the platforms 27m and 21m above the Adriatic Sea walking through a private living room. The house is built over the most famous cliff of the coast and looks integrated into the cliff itself.

Polignano a Mare is a typical southern Italian town in the province of Bari, Puglia, with just a little more than 16,000 inhabitants. It was also the birthplace of Domenico Modugno, writer and interpreter of the world famous song "Volare" (flying). Puglia's scenic coastline stretches over 750 kilometers; its biggest city is Bari, hallmarked by the Swabian castle, museums, several churches and monuments, and modern facilities such as an international airport, a tourist and industrial port, and fast railway connections.

An extremely pleasant climate makes this region the ideal setting for sports & nature activities all year round: trekking trails, cycling routes, horse riding, golf greens, diving centers, beaches equipped for windsurfing, sailing and kite surfing are Puglia's sports tourism highlights.
