Bari Italy History
The city of Bari, located in the southern Italian region of Puglia and formerly called Barium (Latin name), was created after the construction of the Via Traiana. In my last contribution I wrote about the history of the city of Bari and its history, as well as about the cultural heritage of the city.
The city of Bari in the southern Italian region of Puglia is the capital of the province of Bologna and the second largest city in Italy after Rome.
The Teatro Petruzzelli, which opened on February 14, 1903 with Meyerberry's Huguenots, is Italy's fourth largest theatre and it is worth going to Bari to see a performance. The recently restored venue is the Auditorium Nino Rota, named after the Italian composer famous for the soundtrack to the film "Godfather." With its promenade, which boasts the largest expanse of Italy, and a magnificent view of the Mediterranean Sea, it has gained the reputation of a tourist destination, pampered by tourists and playing music from small bars where you can sit down with a delicious aperitif and admire the wonderful sunset. A highlight of Bari are its beautiful beaches with a variety of restaurants, bars, restaurants and cafes as well as a number of hotels and restaurants.
If you want to learn more about the pasta scene in Bari, you can take a trip to the famous Piazza Ferrarese, one of the most popular restaurants in the city. The best way to get to the old town is to visit PiaszzaFerraresse, named after Stefano Fabri Fabbro, a Ferrara merchant who settled in Barais in the 17th century. In the south of the city is the Murat district, known as the "modern" district of Bari.
This area, divided into Bari Vecchia and commissioned by Murat, King of Naples, is an architectural delight. There are always imposing monuments from all stages of its development, such as the Castello, as well as some of the oldest buildings in the city, such as the Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi.
One of the best examples of this preserved history is the city of Matera, just outside Bari. It is housed in an ancient cave dwelling that has been home to the locals for thousands of years, a hidden gem of ancient Italian history. About 45 minutes by car from BarI, it houses one of the oldest museums in Europe, the Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi, as well as a number of other historic buildings.
The best way to visit Matera from Bari is a guided tour, where a minivan will pick you up and take you to the cave. From Rome, BarI Centrale can be reached in about four hours, but since the train station in Bar i is just a short walk from the historic center, this is a particularly convenient way to travel and also one of the best options for tourists.
If you are looking for something more organized in Bari and surroundings, then here is a fantastic Bari tour. If you have less time, you can see the entire city from the city center to the historic center and in just a few hours to Matera. Today we start with a guided tour of Giovinazzo, Italy, a town in the province of Bar i Calabria. The country of Puglia on the east coast, which is on its heels, is home to some of the most beautiful and historic sites in Italy.
In the north of Bari the Gargano peninsula borders the Mediterranean Sea and the Gulf of Calabria, in the south with Puglia and Puglia.
Bari Centrale railway station is used by the long-distance trains of FS, the Italian national railway network, which operates long-distance trains to and from Rome, Naples, Lecce, Bologna, Milan and other Italian cities. The Trenitalia long-distance trains that connect Bari to LECce and the routes between BarI and Igoumenitsa are the most popular destinations between Greece and Italy during the summer season. The main railway lines of FS (FS) and its sister company, Italian Railways (RER), connect Bar i with other Italian destinations and use the main railway stations of Baris CentRale.
Autolinee Ferrovie del Sud Est operates the Foggia - Bari line, the main railway line on the Italian railway network. It covers a distance of 2,500 km from Naples to Naples and from Taranto to the major cities of Salento, from where it serves the province of BarI. The Autoloaders of the Ferrovoglia dels Sud - Est (FOGGIA) run from Bologna to Pescara, Naples and other cities in the region.
Bari has its own dialect, and various dialects can be found in Bari when driving to the Salento area or Trani, as well as in the city itself.
One of the biggest attractions of Bari is the large, imposing church, which is located in the centre of the old town and has historical connotations of southern Italy. It has the largest port on the Italian Adriatic coast and with its access to numerous shipping lanes, the city was, next to Naples, the most important economic center of the region. Let us not forget that southern Italy is the most important port of Italy, Naples, and also the second largest in Europe. On the map of BarI there are a large number of small towns and villages in southern and central Italy, but none is as large as Bara.
