What's Bari Like?

Bari is a picturesque getaway destination situated along the Mediterranean, and offers plenty of cultural and metropolitan experiences. One of the most exciting landmarks in the city is Il Succorpo della Cattedrale di Bari, a Cathedral which is undergoing an archaeological dig after the discovery of a buried Roman structure. For history and culture lovers, attractions such as the Pinacoteca Provinciale di Bari Corrado Giaquinto (Provincial Art Gallery of Bari), or the Museo Archeologico Statale di Altamura (State Archaeological Museum of Altamura) offer an inspiring look into the city's past with their many art and artifact exhibits. For an afternoon of sun and sea, you can take a trip down to the Pane e Pomodoro Beach with its sapphire blue waters and open air bars.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Bari

Bari enjoys a Mediterranean climate, which results in mild winters and pleasantly hot summers. The summer months last from June to August, and afternoon temperatures typically rise to an average of 75 Fahrenheit, however unexpected heatwaves have often seen temperatures soar 100 Fahrenheit on rare occasions, so it pays to be prepared. The locals of course speak Italian, however Bari is often overlooked by tourists, so try not to expect many of the locals to speak English. Instead, try to memorize a few Italian phrases such as "Parla inglese?" ("Do you speak English?") or carry an Italian pocket guide, and you will have a much easier time getting around the city. The main way to travel in and out of the city is via Bari Centrale railway station, which offers direct links to Rome, Foggia, Brindisi, and Lecce; Venere makes booking a hotel easier wherever you go in Italy!
