Bari (ancient Barium) is an industrial and commercial city in the Apulia region of southern Italy and a Middle Ages seaport on the Adriatic Sea. The old quarter of the city with its narrow streets sits on a promontory separating the old and new harbours and here are the remains that governed Bari's history. The old town and historical sites can be seen on foot from your ship in an hour or two. There are two notable Romanesque churches: the Basilica of San Nicola (11th -12th century) and the Cathedral (late 12th century). The Norman Suabian castle facing the sea was reconstructed in 1233 to 1240 by Frederick II and the bastions with angular towers were added in the 16th century.

Bari was formerly a Greek colony and later a busy Roman trading port. It came under the domination of the Lombards, the Byzantines, and the Normans. It was a key Italian naval base during World War II, and sustained heavy damage. From here you can visit Alberobello with its trulli (round white washed buildings with grey conical roofs) and the ruins at the ancient Roman city of Egnazia.

There are more than 30 cruises calling at this port. Click the month or cruise line logo you are interested in to see details of the cruises.
