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.

“Bari is a city where you can feel and taste the real Italy on every street corner.”

A tribute to Puglian cuisine

Make time to sample local delicacies as you explore Bari and its surrounding region. Known for its many olive trees, the region is a major producer of Italian olive oil. Would you like to eat seafood? Then you have come to the right place. The fish market at the old port sells fresh catches of the day straight from the Adriatic waters. Sample the most famous regional dish: orecchiette alle cime di rapa. In the morning you can watch the orecchiette pasta being made on the Via delle Orecchiette in Bari Vecchia. Also order some panzerotti, focaccia or burrata. The delicious ring-shaped savoury taralli come in many different flavours and are a frequent staple of bread baskets. Another speciality of Puglia is the pasticciotti pastry. A delicious sweet shortcrust pastry filled with cream. Buon appetito!
