A fascinating cultural crossroads on the Adriatic Sea, Bari is an intoxicating fusion of historic architecture and grand boulevards, mixed with hip bars and a nightlife that’s sure to set your heart racing. Discover Puglia's enchanting capital on a holiday to Bari.
Bari has rested on Italy’s high heel for 2,500 years. Even so, it remains something of a well-kept secret. The city is split into two distinct but equally appealing halves: the old town and the modern city. The old town is where you’ll find the city’s most famous site, the 11th century Romanesque Basilica containing the earthly remains of one Saint Nicholas (yep, Father Christmas!). The modern city was built by Napoleon’s brother-in-law, Joachim Murat and is linked to the old town by a stunning promenade of chic restaurants. Sophisticated and endlessly photogenic, Bari is the ideal destination to discover on the hoof.
