Description of Visit of the city of Bari and Basilica San Nicola
Here we offer you a wonderful opportunity to visit the beautiful city of Bari, accompanied by a certified guide who will show you all the beauties of this architectural pearl of great historical importance, overlooking the Adriatic Sea .
During the excursion , which will last about three hours, you can admire the riches of the Apulian capital, walking through the streets of " Bari vecchia " admiring its Romanesque churches and the castle dating back to the Middle Ages.
Our excursion will not fail to take you to the most famous squares of the city and will also leave you plenty of free time to do some shopping or enjoy the good weather in a city bar.
The tour will unfold between different key points of the city tourist itineraries with great attention to the splendid Romanesque cathedral dedicated to St. Nicholas , the bishop of Myra, sanctified by both the Catholic and Orthodox religions, of which the cathedral preserves the remains, the figure of which is at the origin of the birth of the myth of Santa Claus.
The visit will then move to the beautiful cathedral of San Sabino , consecrated in 1292, and to the Norman-Swabian castle , built in its first era by Ruggiero the Norman, with a troubled history that has seen the almost complete destruction by William I of Sicily and a subsequent rebuilding at the behest of Emperor Frederick II Hohenstaufen of Swabia.
Before leaving the group for some free time to go shopping or relax, we will visit the Mercantile Square and the Column of Justice , located in the port area of Bari.
