Southern Italian hotspot and the capital of Puglia, Bari is famed for its beautiful beaches and amazing food. Excursions typical include a cycle through the city to discover its many hidden gems, including the 12th century Basilica of San Nicola and the famous Castle, an ancient fortress built to defend the Old Town.
Bari is also the point from which excursions are taken to Alberobello, a small town renowned for its unique trulli constructions that have been designated World Heritage Sites. Also popular is a day trip to the Paleolithic settlement, Matera, to see its stone or sassi cave houses.
Your cruise ship will dock at a new cruise terminal from where it is a short walk to the city centre.
