Bari, the second largest city of Southern Italy, is capital of the Apulia (or Puglia) region, located on the Adriatic Sea. Named the fifth largest province in Italy and also the most populated, Bari carries a population 322.541, according to ISTAT data of 2013.

As a very prominent seaport, Bari is more than 5,000 square kilometers in size and its ports face the Adriatic Sea and connect to other Adriatic ports using railways, boat and roadways. Bari also connects with Naples by roadway.
Bari has become one of the top commercial and industrial leaders in Italy. People have come to know Bari as ‘California of the South‘, which is a title given to the city for its amazing growth and leadership compared to other areas in the South.

Brief History of Bari
Believed to be originally Illyrian, Bari was controlled by the Greeks and then, later, the Romans. The Latin name for Bari is Barium. During the Roman era, Bari was a connection between the coast roadway and the Via Traiana, and is thought to have been the main focus point of a fishery. As early as 181 BC, Bari’s harbour is noted.

Bari was conquered and ruled by the Goths and Lombards as well as the Byzantines. In 1071, it came under the rule of the Normans, and became the chief town of Apulia. Crusaders often sailed from Bari. During the Middle Ages, Bari was ruled by lords such as Hohenstaufens and the Sforzas of Milan. The city suffered damage in World War II.

Bari is divided into parts which include a modern area called “quarters”, which was developed in 1820, and an ancient district, located on a peninsula to the north, which contains many beautiful Romanesque-Pugliese structures and churches, where tourists can relive history
The Cathedral of San Sabino (dating back to 1035) is one of them. There is also a major shopping district, the town of Murattiano, which is located to the south. The famous Via Sparano and Via Argiro are located there.

On the more modern side of Bari, there are villas and supermarkets. Buses are available for travel in the city.
Food and Fun
Bari offers many creative dishes with colorful vegetables such as turnip tops with orecchiette pasta or cavatelli. Red-yellow peppers stuffed with meat or rice, baked in the oven, is another delicious specialty. Local “farmhouses” carry these dishes and other similar ‘veggie’ delights!
Other ingredients popular in local cuisine include bass, clams, cuttlefish, mussels, oysters, cod, prawns, sea bream, lobster, anchovies and sole, which are cooked using various methods.
If you like pizza, there are pizzerias for every type of pizza.
