Full description

Explore one of the most famous buildings in Bari, the Norman-Swabian Castle, known for its extensive moat. Go inside this 13th-century castle which has been converted into a museum with your tour guide. Admire the exhibits of jewelry on display and appreciate the sculptures in the Gipsoteca.

Enter the castle with your guide, who specializes in art history. Then, explore the castle to see the central courtyard and the three stone towers outside. Next, go into the Gipsoteca in the west wing of the castle, where you can see plaster copies of famous sculptures and carvings of monuments.

Francesca Romana was able to make the visit of the Norman Swabian Castle very interesting. I will recommend it to my friends, relatives and acquaintances. I will definitely participate in other guided tours offered by BariTours!
