Magnificent Bari – How To Get Around And Some Important Landmarks

Aesthetics and culture are guaranteed when you travel the length and breadth of Italy. From the Alps in the north to the ancient ruins of Rome, the country provides some of the most documented landscapes and attractions on the planet.

The city of Bari is one of these scenic gems, the gateway to the fascinating Adriatic coast and a town that is brimful of heritage and wonderful local traditions and cuisine.

Moving Around Bari – Airport Transfers And More

Getting to and from Bari city is best done with a chauffeured solution. Travel experts would recommend a reputed provider of Bari airport transfers. The Bari airport is around 20 km west of the city and you can easily book a transfer online in advance for a hassle-free experience.

Pre-booking allows you to share details like the number of passengers and luggage size so you get the best vehicle. With local drivers waiting for you at the airport (or picking you up from your lodging), you do not have to worry about navigating the streets of an unfamiliar town.

Extra perks include free child seats and even if there is a delay in your flight, the experienced and well-trained chauffeurs will wait for you. When you pay in advance, you free up some cash for your travel but you also have the option of direct payment to the driver. Apart from airport transfers, there are city tour options also to explore this ancient port town.

The Attractions of Bari

Bari’s old quarters represents the architectural charm of medieval and Renaissance Italy. The Basilica of Saint Nicholas is close to a thousand years old, a stark and square shape that resembles a fortification rather than the more ornate churches of later centuries.
The indoor arches are very eye-catching and so is the intricately designed ceiling. The Swabian Castle is another landmark that history enthusiasts must visit. Apart from its rather well-preserved ramparts and attractions, it offers a very picturesque view of the old town.

What is a trip to Bari without a sampling of its food? There are many iconic restaurants tucked in the narrow old streets serving indigenous fare. Enjoy the casseroles here – savory preparations made of peppers, rice and various types of meat.

Being a port city, there is ample choice for seafood lovers – bass, clams, lobsters, and anchovies are very popular here. The pasta here is distinctive from what you would normally come across and Bari also boasts many delightful baked goodies – prominent amongst them is the Altamura bread.

Just like any other Italian city, Bari also offers many spectacular shopping options. Travelers can head over to Via Sparano or Via Manzoni and explore the most sought-after European brands. You can also come across some offbeat boutiques and stores at the bustling Corso Camillo Benso Cavour. Hunt for bargains and also relish some people-watching from one of the many cafes that dot the streets.

Planning a trip up front will help you get the most out of your trip to Bari since there is so much to see and do here. Choose efficient airport transfers and keep yourself fresh from a flight. Soak in the spectacular scenery of this famed coast and have an unforgettable trip.
