5 good reasons to go

Discover Apulia
Discover Apulia
If you’d like to explore Apulia, then Bari is the best place to start! See the fascinating Trulli in Alberobello, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Trulli are circular houses with cone-shaped roofs. And don't miss the pretty city of Trani, the Castellana caves or Andria’s 13th-century Castel del Monte. The region is full of surprises!
Explore a Norman-Swabian Castle
Explore a Norman-Swabian Castle
This fortress is an iconic landmark in Bari. Its outer wall and Gipsoteca sculpture museum are worth the detour alone. It was built in the 12th century, and embellished by Swabia’s Frederick II. But after the Renaissance, the castle went into decline. When you visit the fortress, try and spot features from different time periods.
Soak up the sunshine on the beach

Southern Italy is synonymous with breathtaking coastlines! Make the most of the sunshine to visit Italy’s beautiful beaches, coves and rocky inlets. There are several beaches in Bari, but the most popular are in Polignano a Mare and Monopoli. If you drive, it should take 30 to 40 minutes to reach these captivating landscapes.
Shining a spotlight on Apulian cuisine
Shining a spotlight on Apulian cuisine
You can’t visit Italy and not eat pasta. In Apulia, there’s a local shaped pasta called orecchiette which is really popular, along with cavatelli and fricelli. As Bari lies on the banks of the Adriatic, you’ll find there’s lots of seafood and fish on the menu. Locorotondo is an Apulian white wine that goes well with local dishes.
Stroll along the “lungomare”
Stroll along the “lungomare”
The Lungomare Araldo di Crollalanza stretches from the Margherita Theatre to the art gallery. It is reminiscent of the Promenade des Anglais in Nice or La Croisette in Cannes. The facilities along the seafront invite you to sit and watch the ocean as it changes from emerald green to turquoise blue. You can’t visit Bari without admiring this stunning view!

Culture and history

In Bari Vecchia

In Bari Vecchia

Take a flight to Bari and wander down the little streets of the historic Bari Vecchia quarter.

Travel back in time at the Simi Palace

Travel back in time at the Simi Palace

The 16th-century Simi Palace is located in the old town. When you visit, take in the Renaissance architecture and additional Baroque features. Inside, you’ll find a number of rare archaeological artefacts. And there’s a surprise in store in the cellar: the ruins of a Byzantine church! If you love history, the Simi Palace is a must.

Appreciate art at the gallery

The Corrado Giaquinto art gallery features several major collections, mainly focused on the period between the Renaissance and 18th century. Works by Tintoretto, Veronese, Corrado Giaquinto and many others are on display here. The gallery is housed in the Palace of the Province, so you should also take a moment to admire the building when you visit!

Outings

An evening at the Petruzzelli theatre

An evening at the Petruzzelli theatre

Audiences can enjoy a range of operas and classical music concerts at the beautiful Petruzzelli theatre. The theatre was first constructed at the start of the 20th century, but was rebuilt in 2009 after a fire. Keep an evening free to enjoy a famous aria or two in this unbelievable venue.

Take a walk down pasta street!

Foodies should head to Arco Basso for an authentic Italian experience. This little lane is also known as the “Strada delle Orecchiette” (Orecchiette Street), as you can watch the locals make orecchiette pasta in the traditional way. The ladies carry their tables out onto the street and get to work in front of you!

Gastronomy

Orecchiette: Apulia's favourite pasta

In Bari, you can’t escape orecchiette. These little ear-shaped pieces of pasta are an Apulian speciality. They are served with either vegetables or seafood. Purists often just go for a splash of olive oil and a sprinkling of parmesan.

Taralli, a culinary delight

Taralli, a culinary delight

Before a meal, there’s nothing better than a pre-dinner drink with taralli to nibble on. These salty, ring-shaped crackers are highly addictive! Some are flavoured with wine or sprinkled with seeds. Everyone has their own recipe and their favourite kind. You also get sweet tarallicoated in icing sugar. These are particularly popular at Christmas.
