Bari and St. Nicholas Basilica

The capital of Apulian Romanesque style

 

Bari is the capital of Apulian Romanesque style. While here, you will see the two faces of the city. First, you will visit the French-influenced Murat quarter, with its elegant 19th Century theaters and majestic Liberty-style palaces. From there, you will visit picturesque old Bari, full of ancient traditions, seaside fish markets, narrow lanes, and homemade orecchiette pasta. During the guided tour, you will experience the austere beauty of several Romanesque churches, including the religious soul of the city, the Basilica of St. Nicholas.
