Off to Bari? Get ready for the good cheer, warm welcome and vibrancy that this city has to offer. Bari is a splendid seaside city, and its port is now the biggest on the Adriatic Sea. You can admire the historic centre, which is full of old buildings such as the Basilica of St Nicholas, the Cathedral of San Sabino and Castello Svevo. A visit to Bari would be unthinkable without sampling some of the many gastronomic delights or experiencing the local religious traditions. From the streets, where housewives sell home-made orecchiette pasta, to the narrow alleys with linen flapping in the sun, to the ancient, brightly coloured religious shrines to the ubiquitous presence of St Nicholas, the city’s patron saint, Bari is a city of great contrasts and traditions. Hiring a car from Maggiore gives you the opportunity to travel around in comfort at any time, because Bari also has a vibrant nightlife. But that’s not all: with a hire car from Maggiore you’ll also be able to visit some of the fabulous places in the surrounding area. Examples include the Itria Valley, with its traditional white villages where you can admire the trulli in Alberobello (UNESCO World Heritage Site), Locorotondo and Noci.
