Uncover the sublime medieval landmarks of Bari, a hallowed city said to hold the remains of two revered saints, on this enlightening walking tour. After a brief drive through downtown Bari, you’ll arrive at the Old Town and begin a walking tour that leads you to the Norman-Swabian castle, symbol of the city and its most dominant structure. You’ll marvel at this spectacular example of medieval construction, which features an impressive stone bridge over a dry moat, sheer ramparts and several imposing towers. Continuing through the Old Town’s warren of narrow streets, you may see women hand-making a pasta called orecchiette, meaning little ears, on tabletops outside their homes, as this uniquely shaped treat is a favorite throughout the Puglia region at the heel of Italy’s boot. Admire the Cathedral of San Sabino, a masterpiece of Apulian Romanesque design that, according to legend, shelters its namesake saint’s relics, and the splendid Saint Nicolas Basilica, also a resting place for its venerated saint. Delight in a stroll along Bari’s ancient defensive walls and, if you choose, remain in bustling Piazza Massari to browse the tempting shops of bewitching Bari.
