We took the train here from Taranto. It is very easy to get to Bari via train. The Old City Centre has many places to see, from the massive old fort, to the many religious buildings. It has the old European, narrow, windy streets, with...More

Rather mixed City, fairly run down, but with some great history if you can dig it out! Amazing buildings including some of the palaces and the undercroft of the cathedral and church of St Nicola and perhaps the castle. Mixed bunch of bars and restaurants,...More

We must have walked through this charming historical centre many times over, often getting lost in the streets, but never disappointed. The homemade pasta, the local bars, the small grocers, the street musicians... all very inviting and charming. Great people watching.

I loved Bari and will surely return next summer as it is historical and nice architecture all around with nice restaurants and cafes

Always enjoy Bari centro storico. Lots to see. The Basilica, cathedral, the amazing roman and early Christian excavations under the cathedral . They can be found once inside the cathedral. Many museums and the castle. Get lost in the lanes and many good restaurants. We’ve...More

You can buy fresh, home-made pasta to take home and cook. There are lots of interesting shops - besides the tourist shops. I just loved the doors, doorways and old and rehabbed buildings.
