The city of Bari, Puglia’s provincial capital, is washed by the Adriatic Sea, and is one of the finest destinations in southern Italy.
It’s a mix of history, culture and fun. Among the things not to be missed is the Norman Swabian castle (Piazza Federico II di Svevia, Bari, BA), Bari’s symbol, at the entrance of the city, inside collections of archaeological finds.
Located in the sun-drenched, picturesque, coastal gem of the Apulia region (or Puglia, as it is known to the locals), Bari is the capital city of this land in Southern Italy. Its 320.000 inhabitants appreciate the quality of life that this city offers. Bari is the capital and the main economic Centre of the Puglia. In recent years Bari has gradually built a reputation as a bridge between West and East, that mirrors an increasingly multi-cultural, open, tolerant and friendly community, connecting people, individuals and businesses, from different countries and cultures. Bari has a maritime flavour and deserves a glance for the panoramic seafront promenade, and the historic and atmospheric old town, called Bari Vecchia, a medieval warren of tight alleyways and graceful piazzas with fascinating Romanesque-styled churches.
