Beautiful, historic, sunny, young, atmospheric, Mediterranean… all these words describe what this town has to offer. As the capital of the Puglia region and a student hotspot, Bari is more urban than the nearby cities of Lecce and Brindisi. Bari offers a beautiful opera house, which has recently been restored, and many other impressive buildings that clearly show the prestige of Italy. Bari is a busy port city with ferry routes to Greece, Croatia, and Albania.
If you like grand architecture, Bari will certainly not disappoint you. Take, for example, the basilica in which the remains of Saint Nicholas are kept. Among the Italians, it is known as San Nicolo. At first, the basilica looks huge and intimidating, however as you get closer you will see the beautiful little details in the sculpture, including the animals guarding the doors. Another gem in the city is San Sabino Cathedral. The cathedral is of great value for the remains of Norman decorations. Do not forget to stroll over to the cozy Piazza Mercantile, and enjoy a coffee or lunch break. This square is also a popular meeting place for the locals.
