VENUE & ATTRACTIONS BARI
Bari is the capital city of the Metropolitan City of Bari and of the Apulian region, on the Adriatic Sea, southern Italy. It is the second most important economic centre of mainland Southern Italy after Naples. It is a port and university city, as well as the city of Saint Nicholas. Bari is made up of four different urban sections. To the north is the closely built old town on the peninsula between two modern harbours, with the Basilicia of Saint Nicholas, the Cathedral of San Sabino and the Hohenstaufen Castle , which is now also a major nightlife district. To the south is the Murat quarter , the modern heart of the city, which is laid out on a rectangular grid-plan with a promenade on the sea and the major shopping district (the via Sparano and via Argiro).
Top things to do in Bari include city sightseeing tours on foot or by bike, rickshaw, or Segway; street food experiences and cooking classes; and day trips to Castel del Monte, the villages of Polignano a Mare and Conversano, and the ancient ruins of Gnatia.
Piazza del Ferrarese: The main square in Bari’s historic center.
Trulli di Alberobello: Feel like you’ve been dropped into a gnome village with a visit to Alberobello, one of the most unique towns in Italy and home to over 1,000 roundtrulli, fairy-tale-like whitewashed cottages topped with conical roofs. The trulli of Alberobello, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, are a top destination in Puglia’s Itria Valley and a must for photographers.
Swabian Castle: Is one of top sights in Bari and a refreshing break from the port city’s Romanesque churches and art collections. Climb the Hohenstaufen tower and Aragon walls for sweeping views of the city and sea.
Trani: This unassuming seaside town on the coast of Puglia was a major maritime power in the Middle Ages, and home to one of the largest Jewish communities in southern Italy. Today a relaxed port city, Trani is dotted with vestiges of its former glory, including the romanesque cathedral, Scolanova Synagogue, and medieval fort.
Gravina di Puglia: Considered one of the prettiest hill towns the region, is home to a historic duomo, aqueduct, and castle, but its most remarkable treasures are hidden deep underground.
