It is so beautiful! All the streets are very narrow, crowded but clean! There are a lot of locals living in this area. They hang the clean cloths to be dried outside, therefore is a nice smell of clean (detergent like). You can easily enter...More

Cameras are fun. The streets are narrow and winding. But don't be rude and stick your nose into someone's open front door.

A must see in Bari and highlight of the city is the old town in stone on the old end near the fortress. Crafts of locals on outside of dwellings such as orechhiette pasta etc,

We visited Bari's old city with our rickshaw tour. The place is full of charm with its streets and arcs. Do not miss the Church of San Nicola and Bari's Cathedral.
