Beautiful little streets where you can really feel the authentic vibe of the city. You can hear locals speak, you can smell the food they're cooking and you can observe the daily life.

Heading straight ahead from Bari Railway Station through the chic shopping street, you enter the very charming Old City. Endless narrow ancient streets and alleyways await to enchant you, unmissable.

To step out of the busy chic shopping centre of Bari and into the heart of the Citta Vecchia is like walking across a timeline into the past. Old Bari conserves all the feeling of a timeworn community, albeit without the decadence. The people of...More

We spent hours walking in these narrow streets. I had seen videos of these streets, and was surprised to see the vendors that were in the videos. The houses don't look very comfortable to live in live in, but I am sure it will be...More

The periphery of Bari is a typical Italian city periphery, meaning awful. The new city is modern and matches Milan in night life, food, stores, etc. But the old city is the best thing about Bari, if not all of Puglia. It is a charming...More

The old town is just so quaint and Italian. Loved this place. The narrow streets, street vendors selling their beautiful pasta and little old men riding bikes. One of my favorite places in Italy.

You can happily get lost in the narrow alley ways and literally peep into the residential houses at a very old and traditional culture and lifestyle! The various bars, cafes and restaurants are intermittent with the residents living alongside, above and amongst them. Old men...More
