Bari Cruise Port (Terminal Crociere di Bari)

Piazzale Cristoforo Colombo, 1, Bari, Puglia, 70122

The Basics

Highlights of Bari’s old town (Bari Vecchia) include the Romanesque Basilica di San Nicola, dedicated to the Saint Nicholas the rest of the world knows as Santa Claus; Via Sparano, the city’s elegant boulevard lined with designer shops; and Castello Svevo, a castle now used for art exhibitions. The city also has a lively market, bustling restaurants and cafés, and vibrant nightlife.

Bari’s old town is surrounded by a vast urban sprawl of apartment blocks and office buildings, so the best way to explore is by joining a private or small-group tour that includes a transfer from the port to the center of the historical district.

It’s possible to walk to Bari’s historical core from the port, but it’s not a particularly pleasant stroll.
