Bari is located in the south of Italy, in the Puglia region whose shape recalls the heel of the boot. Bari is quite a big city, one of the biggest of the whole of southern Italy. Even if Bari might not be on your destinations bucket list, you could end up there -- for instance, if you are traveling by boat, as the town is located on the Adriatic Sea.

Whatever reason takes you to Bari, you should take advantage of what the city has to offer. Nowadays it is a large city known for its commercial importance as it's port is a center of import and export for many goods. But Bari it isn't only made of shops, houses, and boats -- there is the old town, which is worth visiting. The local people call it "Bari Vecchia" and it seems like a small medieval town within the city. It's almost magic walking in the narrow streets, enjoying the stone architecture and the slice-of-life scenes (an old lady making fresh pasta or hanging the washing out of her windows) -- it brings you back in time.

In Old Bari, there also is the famous Basilica of Saint Nicola, which is the main and more impressive church, well known for its crypt and golden-decorated ceiling, which is definitely worth a visit. There are many other old buildings you can visit, and also there are a lot of coffee shops, restaurants, and bars that are usually open until late at night -- here is where most young people spend spare time. Just one recommendation -- the old town is also famous for its pickpockets, so be careful when using cameras or other valuables.

Getting around Bari is pretty easy on foot or by using the local buses or taxis, which might be a bit pricey. If you're stopping for the night, there are plenty of hotels, but the cheap options, including Bari hostels, are limited. There are few Bari hostels with dorms and private rooms, but they are not that cheap either. Apart from Bari hostels, you might find some budget accommodations at reasonable prices like bed and breakfasts. After a good night sleep at your Bari hostel, there are plenty of places to go for shopping to buy everything from typical products (wine, fresh homemade pasta, and pottery) to high-fashion brands.
