Venture to Bari, the capital of Italy’s Apulia region, to stay in 4-star accommodations and discover the region’s enchanting nature, history, and culture. During your stay, you’ll head on private tours to surrounding landmarks, including the Castellana Caves, Alberbello with its unique trulli houses, and the seaside towns of Monopoli and Polignano.


This 4-day Italy vacation takes you to Bari to explore the picturesque Adriatic coastline of southern Italy.

Your Italian vacation showcases the port city of Bari, the capital of southern Italy’s Apulia region. Located between two natural harbours, Bari features a labyrinthine old town full of dazzling medieval architecture, including the 11th-century Basilica di San Nicola, which holds some of the remains of St. Nicholas, the basis for the figure of Santa Claus. Staying at the 4-star Hotel Oriente Bari, you’ll explore the old town and venture to nearby landmarks. On your first day, tour the city to learn about the “heel of the boot of Italy” and see historical landmarks. That afternoon, head to nearby Monopoli and Polignano, two picturesque towns where you can enjoy the beaches of the Adriatic and feast on some gelato. The next day, head on a private tour to the Castellana Caves, one of the world’s most beautiful cave systems. After exploring the caves, head to Alberobello to see the iconic cone-roofed houses before ending your tour with a wine tasting. At the end of your stay in Bari, head to the train station to continue your onward journey.

This trip to Bari is a great addition to a longer Italian vacation.
