This virtual tour will allow you to discover Bari, starting from its origins until its modern district. It is a sort of promenade through the history of this wonderful place surrounded by the Adriatic Sea. We will start our exploration from the Castle. Then, we will get an opportunity to appreciate the vast gastronomic tradition of Southern Italy by watching how the typical handmade pasta is prepared by local women in the famous “Pasta street”. 

Next, I will show you one of the oldest streets of Bari, dating back to the Byzantine period, better known as “Lovers street”. Then, I will explain to you the history, architecture and traditions linked to the Cathedral. Next to the Cathedral, I will show you the method used in the past to preserve ice and food: the Snow arch.
Admire the Basilica, dedicated to St. Nicholas, the protector of Bari and religious symbol of the city. And, I will tell you in detail about his history and how this figure turned into Santa Claus. We will walk in the largest street of Bari Vecchia, where we will see an old place of worship, nowadays used as a place where focaccia (local snack) is produced.
We will leave the old town and reach the square, more modern and dating back to the 18th century. In the square, we will see the column of the wrongdoers used in the past to torture and punish the criminals. Take a panoramic walk over the middle-aged protective walls and admire the seafront built during the Fascist period. See an archaeological dig dating back to the period of the Roman Empire. Finally, from Ferrarese Square, I will show where the 19th-century urban expansion starts and tell you about a legend associated with it.
