Nice to have open spaces after all the very narrow passage ways. There are restaurants and snack places here but also just some places to sit for free.

The biggest square in the old city of Bari. From here you can walk to the narrow streets. Many restaurants available. I really recommend Black & White. Not very cheap but the best i have eatten in my city break.

The very center of the Old Town, Piazza Mercantile was one of the only places in the older part of the town with open restaurants, cafes and bars in January. There are several places to eat and drink both here and on the adjoining streets...More

Place is lively in the evening with countless couples, families and teenagers eating, chatting, lounging about or passing through. Located in the old part of town.

We rented a house on Piazza Mercantile, and were very happy. There are many restaurants, bars and cafes on the square, and we always had good food. People gather there every night so it's always a bit crowded but very lively.

This was (and still is) a prime gathering place for the citizens of Bari. It has a fascinating history being the original site of the town's fish market.

This square offers a lot of restaurants, bars, coffee bar(s) and a lot of people hanging out. Nice atmosphere and some of my favorite places in Bari are here.

We passed through this square twice, and ended up eating here. Good place to visit - the semi-ruined church on one side is impressive!

Nice little piazza right next to the shopping streets. Not sure if it has anything historic but its usually empty in the daytime and you can sit on a bench.
