Bari cruise & hotel
Will be cruising from Bari. Need a hotel central to the port terminal, and within walking distance to shops & restaurants. Thank you.
Re: Bari cruise & hotel
We, too, will be sailing from Bari next month and have booked rooms pre- and post-cruise at Boston Hotel. From what I have read, the hotel is OK but the location is supposed to be great. Close to shopping and restaurants, and moderately priced. It is also a quick trip to the port from this hotel. Hope this helps.
Re: Bari cruise & hotel
Hi,I'm from Bari...yes,the Boston Hotel 3* is a good solution,it's near the Old Town,in the Murat quartier,and it is not too far from the port (about 1,5 Km).
There's also the Hotel Domina Palace 4* in the same area.
Travel Tips for Bari
Although i noticed english...
Although i noticed english are not widely spoken,i found the people to be friendly and helpful.On the other hand they drive like crazy(well,i come from Greece so this wasn't very unfamiliar to me).There aren't many traffic lights and drivers pass whenever they want but even if they were,this didn't make a great difference.Even in the narrow streets of the old Bari,they drive like in the rallies!
The picture depicts the Piccini theater,in the new town of Bari.
Fiera del Levante
Bari is considered the bridge between the West and the East thanks to its geographical position,and the Fiera del Levante,the biggest and most important Trade Fair of the Southern Italy,is the symbol of this aspect of Bari.It's a fixed appointment for Bari's inhabitants and not only,in fact many tourists decide to visit this fair every year.According to me,the main attraction is the "Padiglione delle Nazioni",a sort of casbah where traditions and colours from all the world merge.
The Fiera del Levante is organized in September for about a week,but,during the year,other various exhibitions are also organized in the same area.It's traditionally inaugurated by the Italian Prime Minister who,in front of the local authorities and entrepreneurs,talks about the next economical targets of the Government.

bari is essentially a port city/hub between italy and greece. from bari you can continue north to venice or milan or south to rome. the walk from the port in bari to the bari train station is kind of confusing. its about a 30 minute walk. i was fortunate to have met someone in corfu who had come from bari and was headed north to austria. so she knew the directions to the train station. so i just went with her. from what ive heard bari is a cleaner, safer, and more convenient port city than brindisi. the other popular one in italy.
didnt spend much time here. got into bari at 8am and took the train to rome at 11am. had a quick breakfast at mcdonalds. as well as bid a fellow backpacker goodbye as she continued her adventure.
