Vecchia BariThe medieval old town in Bari is a tangled web of narrow passageways and squares. Residential properties mix together with the charming little souvenir shops and hip bars. Partially retaining its original medieval stone wall it is a maze of churches, buildings, and even a castle, all of which can be explored on foot. Stop at a little trattoria for cheap and unpretentious fare such as creamy burrata and fresh local fish.
Basilica di San NicolaUndoubtedly Bari's top tourist attraction has to be the Basilica of Saint Nicholas. This remarkable solid looking Norman church is a fine example of Pugliese-Romanesque architecture. It was built in the 11th century to house the bones of Saint Nicholas, or Santa Claus, and his remains are still in the beautifully vaulted crypt beneath. His body is said to exude a Holy oil called myrrh of which you can buy tiny vials in the gift shop. A must see on your trip to a Bed and Breakfast Bari.
By the SeaBari is an important and still fully functional port. Take a stroll from your Bed and Breakfast Bari down to the seaside promenade and watch the local fishermen bringing in the catch. Bari also has many stunning beaches nearby, the most popular with the locals being the Pane e Pomodoro. Grab a gelato and watch the world go by as you catch some rays.
Weekend BreakThere's certainly plenty to do and see on a relaxing Weekend Break in the quaint little city of Bari. All the cosy B&Bs from Bed and Breakfast Bari are run by genuine locals who will be glad to help a confused traveller get the most out of their Weekend Break. An authentic Pugliese experience guaranteed!
