A brief introduction to Bari.
Bari consists of two different worlds in the same city. One of them is a modern, dynamic and economically active new town, the other is an ancient city, full of charm, humanity and history.
The dividing line between these two cities is Corso Vittorio Emanuele. On one side is the modern city, with streets laid out in chessboard fashion, along which stand the buildings constructed during a period of furious expansion, on the other is an old city that jealously guards its celebrated monuments.
Here you will find the undisputed symbol of Bari, the Basilica of St. Nicholas (San Nicola), with its exquisite examples of Romano-Apulian architecture. Its construction, which began in 1087 to preserve the bones of St. Nicholas, was used as a model for other Romanesque churches, like the one in Trani.
Along the seafront you will find the Swabian Castle (Castello Svevo), built by Frederick II, which became the sumptuous court of Isabelle of Aragon in the sixteenth century, and the St. Nicholas Quay (Molo S. Nicola) where, on the morning of 8th May every year, the statue of the Saint and miracle worker is loaded onto a boat and taken out to sea to be worshipped by the faithful and pilgrims. Here you will also find the "'nderre a la lanze" creek, a popular destination for enjoying the local seafood.
The Fiera del Levante demonstrates the dynamic nature of the city and its busy trading activities as a bridge to the Orient. Its exhibition halls host a succession of shows, particularly dedicated to the Mediterranean area, of which Bari has always been the centre.

Visiting Bari
The province of Bari includes some timeless, historical, very beautiful and unspoilt natural landscapes.
Its countryside is dotted with farmsteads and country manors which, given the defensive function they used to perform, often have the appearance of fortified castles.
In the villages you will find the famous "trulli", the characteristic peasant homes with conical roofs. The most celebrated ones are in Alberobello, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, but they can also be found in Castellana Grotte, Conversano, Gioia del Colle, Locorotondo, Noci and Putignano.
