With sun, culture and entertainment, the southern port of Bari is the perfect base for a summer holiday with lots of variety.
Bari is an important port on the Adriatic, situated on the heel of Italy. It has a population of over 300,000 and is best known for its historical museum and as a university town.
The Basilica di San Nicola is certainly worth a visit. This is where the famous Bishop of Mira is buried, who is best known in the English-speaking world as Saint Nicholas, the bringer of Christmas gifts.
