Most travellers skip Bari on their way to Puglia’s big-hitter, Lecce (the towns have a long-standing rivalry, especially over soccer), but Bari doesn’t lack history or culture. The old town contains the bones of St Nicholas (aka Santa Claus) in its Basilica di San Nicola, along with a butch castle and plenty of unfussy trattorias that have the local nosh – cucina barese – down to a simple art.

The second-largest town in southern Italy, Bari is a busy port with connections to Greece, Albania and Croatia, and sports an international airport with connections to much of Europe.

Off the lustrous, aquamarine waters of the Adriatic Sea, a bustling city hums to life as the sun sets. Though an ancient city, Bari still attains its youthful air, with a thriving nightlife and breathtaking boulevards. The capital city of Apulia region, Bari is the second most important economic center of mainland Southern Italy, as well as a significant port and university city. To the north of Bari lays the old town, where the Basilica of Saint Nicholas, the Cathedral of San Sabino, and the Hohenstaufen Castle built for Frederick II can be found. However, do not let its antiquated architecture fool you as this side of the town acquires a thriving nightlife. To the north of Bari, the more modernized area of the city resides, including a promenade on the sea as well as a major shopping district. Though not a popular tourist destination, Bari works as a hidden treasure trove for those that seek to uncover the culture and history of Southern Italy.

The biggest city in the region, Bari is a major port and a transit point for travelers catching ferries across the Adriatic to Greece, Croatia, and Albania. It's also a cosmopolitan city with one of the most interesting historic centers in the region. In recent years, it has become a major center of pilgrimage for Russian Orthodox visitors, due to its connection with St. Nicholas, the patron saint of Russia, as well as of Bari. The old quarter of the city, around the basilica and the harbor castle, is a lively maze of whitewashed alleyways buzzing with bars, cafés, restaurants, and crafts shops. Most of the modern town is set out in a logical 19th-century grid, following the designs of Joachim Murat (1767–1815), Napoléon's brother-in-law and King of the Two Sicilies. The heart is Piazza della Libertà, where old and young gather in the evenings to stroll up and down and see and be seen.

Villa Romanazzi Carducci Hotel preserves with the greatest respect the memory of a noble residence which goes back to 1885 and includes a lush park with a huge variety of aromatic trees and elegant garden furniture you can appreciate walking along its several natural paths. 

Romantic Anglo-Saxon style rock gardens, balustrades, statues and fountains provide the perfect fusion between the ancient and the modern. 

The smiling, professional and friendly staff will accompany you in every single and special moment of your stay in Bari.
