Old Bari sits on the headland between two ports, the main port for cruise liners and the small fishing port with colourful boats and fish markets.

This picturesque city boasts 12th and 13th century architecture with Baroque /Romanesce influence: The Basilica di San Nicola – St. Nicholas otherwise known as Father Christmas, whose remains are in the crypt below. One of the first Norman churches to be built in Southern Italy; the cathedral built over an original Byzantine Church, il Teatro Margherita used by travelling artists and photographers exhibiting their works and the Norman Castle.  A bustling city full of life where old and new mix well. A university city with elegant straight streets built by Mussolini housing some superb palazzos, built for public sector workers. A culinary delight, where you can see Mammas making fresh pasta in the old cobbled streets.

A wonderful promenade along the seafront provides different scenes during the day and at night.

Bari is well equipped for public transport for those wishing to venture further for day trips like Matera (UNESCO site 2019), the trulli in Alberobello or the seascapes used by film crews at Polignano.

There is something for everyone be it an artist or not.  Bari won’t disappoint. All amenities and tourist attractions are within walking distance.

It is hoped to have some quaint B&B accommodation in the old quarter. I am negotiating a price depending on the numbers. The estimated cost is around 50€ per person per night (approximately 350 € per person for the week). It is anticipated the take up for this holiday will be pretty quick. For those who are definitely interested, payment for the accommodation needs to be paid ASAP to secure their place.

There are direct flights to Bari from Gatwick (BA) and Stansted (Ryanair) both costing around £275 return. Members will have to make their own arrangements for travel. Fortunately both airlines fly into Bari at similar times. I can ask the owners of the B&B to arrange a shuttle service.

Arrangements will be made for your payment direct to the BB owners. Details will follow once above information is received. Bedrooms will be released on a first come first served basis.

Items to respond to Maria with or deal with direct:

  1. Reserve a place ASAP
  2. B&B bedroom composition requirements
  3. Any other requirements
  4. Will you require transportation from the airport to the BB and back? 
  5. Pay B&B direct (booking details will be supplied)
  6. Flights booked direct (early booking recommended)
