Private Tour of Bari
On the day of your tour, meet your guide at your chosen time in front of the Castello Nirmanno-Svevvo, Bari's imposing Medieval castle built by the Normans in the 12th century. After admiring its impressive golden stone walls, you'll begin your private tour of Barivecchia, the city's historic centre.
Explore its most picturesque corners and lose yourselves in the charm of the via dell'Orecchietta, where you'll walk shoulder to shoulder with the locals of Bari. Then, you'll wander over to the Duomo, the Cathedral of San Sabino, a Romanesque-style church with a long history.
After visiting the Cathedral, you'll head to the Basilica of Saint Nicholas, the city's most famous church and an important pilgrimage destination. Why? Well, its crypt is home to the relics of Saint Nicholas, a scared figure both historically, religiously and in modern western culture as the gift-giving Santa Claus (Saint Nick)!
Having delved into the history of the saint, you'll head to a traditional local eatery for a well-earned break. There, you'll be treated to a delicious snack of typical focaccia, one of the most well-loved recipes in Bari, for the finishing touch on an excellent sightseeing tour.
