Puglia – first stop Bari


Puglia – first stop Bari

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

After our stay in Guilianova we took the train to Bari. We decided to spend the night in a hotel not far from the train station rather than make the trek with a large (and heavy) suitcase to the airport to pick up the rental car. This turned out to be a good idea and Bari turned out to be a really nice place to be. Once you get used to the relative chaos compared to Bologna, you can find that it has a fascinating old town, good food and good shopping, especially for clothes. We went to the old town for a meal and walked around the first night and then I went to the airport the next day at around noon and picked up the car. Photos of old Bari below.

Lights at a porta of the old  city - nice landmark for returning to the restaurant

    You’re getting lovely night photos. Do you have tips?

    Hi Nina. My tip is a compact camera that has a large sensor. I have a Cannon Powershot S95 although there may be an updated version by now. I read a review of it 3 or 4 years ago in the New York Times and promptly bought one. It is great for shots without a flash (which is useless anyway for interiors of rooms, etc).
