Enjoy the Italien la dolce vita in Bari

Bari is a city in the Italian region of Apulia on the Adriatic Sea. The region is known for centuries for its mountains, cultivated land and endless coastline. And what does Bari characterize? In the past was it a typical working-class city with an industrial touch, but donˈt let that fool you. Cultural monuments and many places have been rebuilt in recent years, and the city has a new interesting cityscape.

What should you see, do and experience in Bari?

Forget the new port of Bari, stroll through the old port where life has remained unchanged for centuries. Fishermen sell freshly caught fish here. If you want to know the real Bari, you should stop right here. The old port is also an ideal starting point for a walk along the Lungomare, the well-known coast built by Mussolini. Although the port has an unsavory past, it is popular today for the bars, restaurants and cafes that grace it.

It would be a shame to visit Bari without seeing Bari Vecchio. We can also translate the name as Old Bari. It lies between the city walls on the peninsula and is the heart of the historic city center. It is characterized by narrow winding streets, cobblestone streets and small squares that invite you to explore them. Here are situated 4 churches, a cathedral and a basilica. Bari city center is one of those places that will enchant you.

If you want to take a rest in Bari style after a long day, you should visit Piazza Mercantile. In the past traders, fishermen and farmer used to sold their products here, you can also taste a coffee in a local coffee or enjoy a scoop of Italian ice in an creamice-cream parlor. Opposite the square you can find the historical building of the Palazzo del Sedile, seat of the Council of Nobility of Bari. The Colonna della Guistizia – pillar of justice in front of the building where the convicts were bound or whipped.
