travel from rome to bari valenzano

by GABI2210

Hi all,
I land in Rome (ciampino)and have to come to Bari for a training at the agronomic insitut in valenzano. how can i get to the institut? i'm planing to get a train, do I have to make reservations in advance?
thank you for your help

Re: travel from rome to bari valenzano

by mccalpin

I don't know about the institute, but Bari to Valenzano is served by a private railroad (i.e., not the national railroad), called Ferrovie del Sud-Est (Railroads of the South-East)...

Look at
http://www.fseonline.it/orari/100_A.pdf
for the schedule. Note that "Lun-Ven" means Monday through Friday, "Lun-Sab" means Monday through Saturday, "Annuale" means year-round, "Inv./Lug" means winter and July (strange combo, I assume that's right), and so on...

Anyway, the people at wherever you're staying ought to be able to tell you what station to leave from (I don't think it's Bari Centrale) and how to get the tickets. If this railroad is like other private railroads, you won't need to make reservations; in fact, you probably can't...

And for the bit from Ciampino to Bari:

You can't get a train from Ciampino airport. Take the Terravision bus into Rome itself:

http://www.terravision.eu/rome_ciampino.html

The bus will drop you at Termini station. Then buy your ticket from the ticket machines. The ticket office always seems to have very long queues. Machines are easy to use and have English language options. It is (imo) better to use cash than cards as foreign cards sometimes cause problems.

Rome > Bari takes from around 4 hours, with no changes. One-way fare is 50 euro on the fast train. You can find train times, details and fares in English here;

http://trenitalia.it/homepage_en.html

There are departures every 2 hours or so, but only during the afternoon.

You do not need to make a reservation in advance. It is very unlikely indeed that the train you want will be full up.

I too would expect your course provider to send you details about how to reach the institute from Bari.

Of course you do not need to make reservations online in advance for your train tickets. To do so would be foolish, for if your flight is delayed then your ticket will be useless.

If you really must book tickets in advance (I see no reason for this whatsoever) then try to book via the Trenitalia website. But all ticket machines have English language options and, having used Italian trains many times, I really cannot imagine what type of 'hassle' you might encounter.

Do *not* book tickets through Raileurope. Not only does this ticketing agency not list all departures but it also charges commission on fares. The same comments apply to Eurail.

Travel Tips for Bari

Visit the Basilica of St....

by dnwitte

Visit the Basilica of St. Nicholas and the Cathedral of the Odegetria in the old city. These are both magnificent edifices which date back to the period of the Norman conquest, as well as being very active living parishes with outstanding music and (during our stay) almost constant events. The crypt at St. Nicholas actually has the bones of Santa Claus. Turning a corner and running smack into a religious procession, 'La Festa di Santa Maria delle Grazie' according to the lady I asked... A big decked out statue of the the Virgin Mary being borne through the streets accompanied by a booming bleating oomp-pah band and a large crowd of faithful.

The "Borgo Murattiano"

by Ronaldinho86

Inaugurated by the king of Naples Gioacchino Murat who laid its foundation stone at the beginning of Corso Vittorio Emanuele II in 1813,the Murat Quartier or Borgo Murattiano (the commercial and economical center of Bari) is characterized by rationality,with its long and orthogonal streets,where it's very difficult to get lost.During the XX century,it was deeply modified to face up the city's expansion,so a big part of its original architectural heritage got lost,but,at the same time,it was enriched by some great and innovative examples of architecture,scattered in this area.
The main streets are:
- Corso Vittorio Emanuele II,the wide boulevard built on the site where the old wall surrounded the Old Town,which starts from the Margherita Theatre,built on the sea in the old harbour in Liberty style and now closed for reconstruction,and ends with the public garden of Piazza Garibaldi,near the Gothic Venetian Fizzarotti Palace.Halfway,in Piazza della Libertà,the Prefecture Palace (XIX century),a former Dominican monastery in rococò style,is erected,in front of the Municipal Theatre (1840-1854;designed by A. Niccolini),dedicated to the great Barese compositor Niccolò Piccinni and set between the two wings of the Town Hall.
- Via Sparano,the 800mt long pedestrian street,the most fashonable street in Bari,a sort of paradise of the exclusive shopping.It goes from Corso Vittorio Emanuele II to Piazza Aldo Moro,seat of the railway stations,passing through Piazza Umberto I,a big green square seat of the "Università degli studi di Bari".The main buildings in Via Sparano are the imposing Mincuzzi Palace and the San Ferdinando's Church (1844-1849).
- Corso Cavour,the beautiful tree-lined road of the Borgo Murattiano,adorned with Art Nouveau style buildings,where the Camera di Commercio (1889),the Banca d'Italia building (1932) and the Petruzzelli theatre (1903) stand.

Bari, Italy - A Trip into the past

"Be on your guard when visiting Bari, but Enjoy!"

Close to the Bari harbour there is the old city with St Nicholas Basilica, the chatedral and the svevo castle.

Pay attention! It can be unsafe for you to go alone in the old city, expecially if you bring with you cameras, mobiles and so on. There are a lot of pickpockets.
