What to Expect
Discover the delicious cuisine of the Mediterranean on a full-day tour of Bari at the gourmet covered Eataly Market, and see the sights of the Old Town.
Start with a tour of the new city of Bari, the second most important cruise port in Italy after Venice. Rich in history, Bari pre-dates the Romans, but it was during the Middle Ages that it truly flourished, partly as one of the main slave ports of the Mediterranean.
As your explore, you will see old women making handmade orecchiette pasta, and an array of colorful sights, such as the Petruzzelli Theatre, one of the grandest opera houses in Italy. Visit the Basilica of Saint Nicholas, one of the 4 Palatine churches of Apulia, and home to the relics of Saint Nicholas.
Around Midday, you will go to Eataly Bari, a huge food market with restaurants. Watch the chefs preparing Italian food and, on request, enjoy a typical Apulian lunch of authentic home-grown produce.
After a coffee break, stroll the historic Old Town, and immerse yourself in the everyday life of the bustling university town.
