This guided tour offers an immersive experience into the rich tapestry of Bari's cultural heritage, blending ancient traditions with iconic monuments. Beginning at the Teatro Petruzzelli, our journey continues along the picturesque seafront promenade (Lungomare), where the timeless ritual of fishermen hauling in their daily catch and shows Bari's enduring maritime identity. As we navigate the labyrinthine streets of Bari's old town, we trace its evolution from ancient Roman settlements to medieval citadels and Baroque masterpieces, immersed in the scent of freshly baked focaccia and the lively banter of locals evoke the city's authentic spirit. Highlights include the majestic Basilica di San Nicola, Cattedrale di S. Sabino, Castello Normanno Svevo and the works of art contained therein. At the end of the walk, participants will be free to delve into the city's culinary delights with a taste of traditional Apulian cuisine at authentic trattorias, savoring specialties such as orecchiette pasta, focaccia and freshly caught seafood.
