Old City

The extraordinary Old City of Bari largely consists of narrow and winding streets, making it a charming place to stroll around. You'll find all the important medieval monuments, such as the Swabian Castle and many churches, including the Cathedral of San Sabino and the Basilica of San Nicola, as well as plenty of bars and restaurants.

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.
