Located in the Italian region of Puglia, Bari is a large port city on the Adriatic coast. Although often overlooked in favour of the more popular Lecce, Bari has much to offer visitors. Bari is home to a large university, meaning its student population injects youthfulness into the city to contrast with its historical appeal.
To explore the city's extensive history, visit the Basilica di San Nicola. This Norman church was one of the first of its kind to be built in southern Italy, and it takes its name from St Nicholas, better known as Father Christmas, whose remains are buried there. Next, take a walk through Bari Vecchia to experience the old town, situated on the peninsula above the old harbour. The charming cobbled streets and twisting alleys offer a relaxing place to meander through historic buildings and meet some of Bari's friendly locals.
The region is also famous for its Cucina Povera, or "food of the poor," a local cuisine that emphasizes delicious but straightforward foods using only local and seasonal ingredients. You can sample these traditional foods in the city's many restaurants and street food vendors.
Bari has its own airport, and metro services connect the airport to the central train station. In addition, numerous coach companies run services to Bari, and frequent trains connect the town to other Italian destinations.
