The old town is just so quaint and Italian. Loved this place. The narrow streets, street vendors selling their beautiful pasta and little old men riding bikes. One of my favorite places in Italy.

Bari 's old town is full of history. Nice narrow streets. You have to walk and feel the vibe. Be careful with the scooter drives they drive fast and seem to appear out of no where

Beautiful old town to stroll around and lose yourself in. Cute narrow streets decorated with religious altars with grandmas kneading pasta in their doorstep. Perfect place to blend in and experience the real local culture

If you can look past the thousands and thousands of cigarette butts the locals just simply throw in the street (actually this is all of Bari, as it may be the cigarette smoking capital of Italy) as well as their garbage, this is a very...More

Cameras are fun. The streets are narrow and winding. But don't be rude and stick your nose into someone's open front door.

A must see in Bari and highlight of the city is the old town in stone on the old end near the fortress. Crafts of locals on outside of dwellings such as orechhiette pasta etc,

You can leave your car on the lungomare and walk to the bari vecchia. There are few houses with old ladies making pasta but you may need to make couple of circles on these streets to find one of them. They usually do it in... More
