Located in the sun-drenched, picturesque, coastal gem of the
Apulia region (or Puglia, as it is known to the locals),
Bari is the capital city of this land in Southern Italy.
In recent years Bari has gradually built a reputation as a bridge between West and East, that mirrors an increasingly multi-cultural, open, tolerant and friendly community, connecting people, individuals and businesses, from different countries and cultures. It is a modern city, at the same time it keeps strong ties with its own traditions.
Bari has a maritime flavour and deserves a glance for the panoramic seafront promenade, and the historic and atmospheric old town, called Bari Vecchia, a medieval warren of tight alleyways and graceful piazzas with fascinating Romanesque-styled churches. Also the modern part and heart of the city, named Borgo Murattiano, is a great place to spend time, with a major shopping district and gorgeous architectures built in the 19th and early 20th centuries.
More, Bari and the Puglia overall can boast some of the best Italy's food and wines, and a genuine authentic, simple and tasty vernacular cuisine, the legendary cucina povera (literally 'cooking of the poor' or 'peasant cooking').
