Bari churchesThe historic center is very compact, so our walking tour will not be tiresome. On an area of just over one square kilometer, there are about 40 churches, I will show you the most notable of them. You will visit the Basilica of Nicholas the Pleasant, where his relics are kept, you can touch the miraculous column, and if the tour takes place on Thursday morning, you can attend an Orthodox service if you wish
Sightseeing tour of the centerWe will walk through the picturesque historical center, which has preserved its pristine nature like, probably, no other large city: it is residential and lively, here you can easily make a mistake with the door and instead of a cozy restaurant go straight to the kitchen of the owner-grandmother and see how she cleverly does local delicacy - orecchiette pasta! During our sightseeing tour, I will tell you the history of the city, about the historical figures associated with it, of course, about Nicholas the Pleasant, about the modern life of Old Bari (as the inhabitants of the old city fondly call their quarter) and some funny facts. You will also see the majestic Swabian castle, learn why Santa Claus wears red and white robes and why you should always carefully read the contracts concluded
After the excursion, you can taste delicious real Italian pizza or seafood, go shopping - shopping in Bari is quite decent at low prices, and in the summer you can go to the beach or just walk along the promenade.
