A Jewel on the Adriatic Coast of Southern Italy
In the southeast of Italy, in the region of Puglia, lies the picturesque port town of Bari. The historic and extensively restored centre of this old university town, together with its Mediterranean climate, are sure to put you in the holiday mood. Stroll through the narrow streets of the old town under lines of freshly washed laundry, sip a cappuccino or a glass of prosecco in one of the many lovely bars, and immerse yourself in the authentic Italian dolce vita.
Bari is also the ideal starting point to discover the Puglia region. Visit the famous Trulli settlement in Alberobello, swim in the crystal clear waters of one of the many gorgeous beaches, and enjoy the charms of the many fishing villages and picturesque mountain views.

Sightseeing in your Bari holidays
Rent a car and drive through the beautiful rolling countryside to Alberobello. The Trulli are round houses with stone roofs that look like pointed hats. The city was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996!
Thanks to its nomination for European Capital of Culture in 2019, and its prominent appearance in the latest James Bond film, the dramatic hill-top city Matera is rightly on the list of many travellers to Puglia.
Visit the Gargano National Park north of Bari for a hike overlooking the fascinating coastline, followed by a refreshing swim in the crystal clear waters. Don't miss a visit to the picturesque fishing village of Vieste.
