Where historic and modern architecture come together.
The city consists of a modern and historic part. Bari Vecchia in the old city centre represents the charm of authentic Italy. Stroll through narrow alleys and bustling piazzas. Visit the city's many cathedrals and basilicas, such as Basilica di San Nicola or San Sabino cathedral. Or stroll along the Lungomare boulevard, by the old port, and gaze out over the turquoise sea. For the best shopping, head to the modern part of the city, especially around the Via Sparano. The Normand Svevo castle is a must see. Go to a concert or an opera in Teatro Petruzzelli.
