Your tour begins at the dock where your professional and experienced guide will lead you straight into the heart of Bari. This amazing town is known all over the world to preserve the remains of St. Nicholas of Myra venerated as a saint by the Catholic Church and the Orthodox Church. His figure has given rise to the myth of Santa Claus (or Klaus).

Along this tour you will have the chance to visit the Basilica of St. Nicholas and Cathedral of St. Sabino, which are among the greatest examples of Apulian Romanesque architecture. We may include a visit to the St. Sabino crypt completely baroque.

See one of the most fascinating attractions in Bari, the Norman-Swabian Castle (exterior), Fortress of the twelfth century built by Roger the Norman. After its partial destruction by William I of Sicily, it was rebuilt by Frederick II of Swabia. This sightseeing tour ends at Piazza Mercantile column of justice. A white marble column with a hope and a stone lion which stands crouched behind the door on the chest and the inscription "Guardian of Justice". After half-an-hour free time to visit the shops, your guide will lead you back to the port.
