Bari Guide

The Italian city of Bari, located in the province of Bari, lies on the Adriatic Sea coast. The town is perhaps best known for its university and sea port. There are many visitor attractions in the city including the Basilica di San Nicola which was established in the 11th century to receive the remains of Saint Nicolas which are now located beneath the church's altar in the crypt. Also worth a visit is Bari Cathedral which was constructed between 1034 and 1178 and is dedicated to Saint Sabinus of Canosa.

Bari's port is one of the most important in the region and provides a hub for sea traffic between Italy and the Middle East and Balkan regions. The port has two harbours. The Old Port is located closest to the old city and is mainly used for small boats and fishing vessels. The modern new port offers passengers destinations including Durres, Igoumenitsa, Cephalonia, Corfu, Patras, Kotor and Dubrovnik. Crossings to Corfu take 8 hours and are only available during the summer months. Services to Igoumenitsa take 9 hours and 30 minutes and also operate during the summer. The New Port is modern and offers both short-term and long-term parking options.
