Archaeological Museum of Egnazia

The Archaeological Museum of Egnazia, situated beyond the walls of ancient Gnathia within the Messapian necropolis, offers a captivating journey through thirty centuries of history. From its significant Bronze Age settlement to its role as a Messapian and Roman city and later an episcopal seat in late antiquity, the museum's exceptional collection of exhibits vividly retraces the remarkable heritage of this ancient site.

Do & See

Bari, a busy port city on the Adriatic coast might not quite yet be able to compete with Italy's other tourist magnets, but it's not likely to stay this way for long: the charming port town does not lack in history or culture. Bari has many stunning sites to offer, such as the Cattedrale Di San Sabino, known as one of the most important attractions in town, and the Castel Del Monte, a unique medieval manor house, 70 kilometres from the centre of Bari. Additionally, be sure to enjoy a walk in the beautiful Orto Botanico or discover the Grotte Di Castellana — the famous caves of Castellana — and visit the Old Town to capture some photos of the medieval buildings, take a stroll by the harbour, enjoy the beautiful sea view, and watch fishermen at work. All the tourist highlights can easily be visited on foot.
