This place is a wonderful place to experience the true old Italian ways of living. In fact, lots of people still life in old towns and have their survival from their stores and restaurants. A good way to know the area is just to walk and wander around observing places and people.

The city of Bari is the capital of Puglia region, in South Italy. Friendly people, excellent foods and a lot of monuments.

It was a great pleasure for us to wander around the narrow streets of the historical centre of Bari. We did not have any plan at all, simply wanted to be there, to feel the atmosphere and eventually to buy some souvenirs.

It was also a really special afternoon for us, as it was the end of our extraordinary trip to Puglia. We visited once again all the places we saw four days ago, this time in a more leisurely manner.

Wonderful Centro Storico with lots of church's, piazzas, palazzos, and pedestrian streets. Bustling yet quaint.

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 many places to see and many little restaurants, shops and coffee shops to indulge in. HIGHLY recommended!

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, pushy simple locals in general.

Some basic food places, fairly basic food in general.

On the whole many far better towns/places to visit before here in Puglia.

Bari nowadays is a busy, modern city, so the old town is more like a refuge from modernity. Narrow streets (mostly pedestrianized), very old churches, parts of a wall, an old fortress, but still a living part of town with residents, restaurants, bakeries, etc. One particularity is that many of the houses have their kitchen at street level, and some with a door opening directly to it. In there, old ladies sit on the kitchen table and prepare fresh, local speciality pasta, whch they sell to passers by. A tradition in Bari which is worth trying

Whether it is Nonnas making fresh Orecchiette pasta or men out playing cards together, this is a place you will see real Italian life to the fullest!

We came to Bari on a bit of a whim when we were in Puglia. The old town was fine enough but pretty small in the scheme of things and outside of that Bari is like any other big city

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.
