Historic buildings, Baroque and Romanesque architectural treasures, fairy-tale castle and idyllic religious and archaeological sites side by side will offer you a wonderful multi-dimensional experience. When you’re not wandering around the city of Bari, you can indulge in the dreamy beaches of the Adriatic Sea, under the shiny Mediterranean sun. Book your flights, organise your accommodation in Bari and let yourself enjoy the Italian South to the most!
An important ancient Greek city, Roman province and base of Saracens, Venetians, Normans and Aragonese, Bari bears a long and turbulent history, with a medieval charm still evident across the castles, the cathedrals and the cobbled streets of the Old Town.
Bari is the largest and most important city of the province of Apulia, in South-eastern Italy. It’s divided in two areas; the Old Town (Città Vecchia) and the modern centre (Città Nuova).
A typical transit spot often overlooked by other more popular Italian cities, Bari is a place well worthy of your time and money, that is transforming into a top travel destination.
The charm of the Old Town, the medieval majesty and the sophisticated atmosphere of the city, as well as the wealth of hotels, restaurants, cafes, nightlife choices and activities offered, will make your stay in Bari memorable!
The airport of Bari (Aeropuerto di Bari-Karol Wojtyła) is located 8 kilometres northwest of the city centre and can be reached by bus and train.

Your day in Bari begins at the Old Town (Città Vecchia), a beautiful medieval district once encircled by walls and today’s most charming part of Bari. Two emblematic churches await you there:
- The Cathedral of Bari (Cattedrale di San Sabino), built in 1602 and refurbished in 1170 adopting Romanesque elements
- The Basilica di San Nicola, one of the first Norman churches of the Italian South. A fine example of Apulia’s Romanesque architecture, the basilica was built in 1087 to house the relics of Saint Nicholas of Russia – also known as Santa Claus! Since then, it serves as a popular pilgrimage
Nearby, the Castello Svevo is your second stop. This magnificent castle dates back to 1240, when Friedrich II von Hohenstaufen rebuilt from scratch the previous Norman castle that was brought down by the furious locals of Bari.
Continue to the modern part of Bari, the Città Nuova and head to the Pinacoteca Provinciale. The provincial art gallery boasts interesting collections of paintings dating back to the 11th century, with particular focus on the works of art by South Italian artists.
A few steps outside Bari, the town of Alberobello is designated UNESCO World Heritage Site and a must-see in Apulia. The site consists of a series of small traditional settlements with houses made of stone. You may have seen pictures of the conical, decorated with pagan symbols roofs of these buildings. They reflect an ancient technique that traces its history back in the pre-historic times!
Finally, you could complete your experience in Bari by paying a visit to the Botanical Gardens of Bari (Orto Botanico), a property of the University of Bari. The gardens were founded in 1955 and house more than 40,000 specimens of the flora of Italy.
The official language of Bari is Italian.
