Are you cruising the Adriatic Sea and docking at Bari? Explore this mazelike town together with an officially licensed English speaking guide, who will tell you everything about this magical place. Your guide shows you where to go, what to see and the history behind it. A must-do when visiting Bari and Polignano.
You will meet your private guide at the cruiseport, holding a sign with your name on it. With adapted vehicle you will first head to the center of Bari, to enjoy the first part of your day with a walking/rolling tour through the old city center. Admire the Castle that was built by the Normans in the 12th century. And take a scroll over the square that is surrounded by bars and old houses.
Your next stop on this Bari and Polignano tour is Alberobello. After a short, scenic drive, you arrive at this iconic little village. This town is known for its whitewashed housed and their conical roofs. Recognizable from a far distance. Here you have some time to explore and stroll around, as well as to enjoy a coffee or some food (not included). Your guide can advise the best authentic places to go.
After Alberobello, you visit Polignano. A lovely coastal town with pebbled beaches and a beautiful cove nestled at the bottom of a cliff. Polignano is car free. Here you enjoy a stroll through the city while your guide shares information about the main attractions of this town. Such as the static and gorgeous church of Abbazia di San Vito, designed in the 10th century. Or the statue of the famous Italian singer and songwriter Domenico Modugno, born in Polignano.
Polignano allows for amazing viewpoints of the cliffs and local beaches. At the end of the walking tour, try a ‘caffè speciale’ or a ‘gelato,’ two things Polignano is very famous for, even beyond the borders of Italy!
Once you have soaked up Bari’s beauty and its surroundings, it is time to go back to the cruise terminal.
