The main city of Puglia, Bari is located in the center of a large flat and lush area and is one of the most important city of southern Italy due to the presence of an important tourist and commercial port. The city where there is a basilica dedicated to St. Nicholas has become over the years one of the main center of union between the Catholic and the Orthodox religion. The basilica is an example of Roman architecture has a bright facade and two towers of different shape and height and has three portals from which you access the place where the remains of the saint are kept.
As said Bari is located in the middle of a large flat area but is surrounded by a barren and rocky plateau, the plateau of the Murgia that the ancient populations have managed to exploit while not fertile, turning the dry river beds into fertile land for the cultivation of olive trees, vines and almond trees.
The entire territory is full of fortified farmhouses that once had a defensive function but which today are the headquarters of farms, restaurants and / or small hotels. Man has certainly contributed to transform this barren land into something wonderful, just think to the “Itria’s valley” in the south of Bari, where we have the presence of the trulli, ancient conical shaped houses with a circular plan, built in dry-piled stone .
To visit in Bari are also the Cathedral, built on the ruins of ancient buildings that many appreciate for the external façade on which there is a finely decorated rosette and the Castle built by Frederick II of Swabia which hosts in the inner courtyard most of the summer events of Bari .
Bari is broken in two, the old city and the new one willed by Gioacchino Murat, where is the famous Petruzzelli’s theater and ideal destination for many tourists who along Corso Cavour do shopping or stop to eat in the typical restaurants where they can enjoy the many DOP products as : pizza, focaccia and bread of altamura, cavatelli and orecchiette with the turnip greens, the sweet olives of Bitetto or the barattiere.
For lovers of the sea, Bari has to offer white sandy but also rocky beaches as those of Polignano. The ancient village of Polignano is perched on a rocky spur full of cavities overlooking the sea with the cleanest waters of the province.
