How to spend 1 day in Bari?

Start off your morning in Bari with a heavy breakfast. A peculiar thing about this town is that everything stays close between 1:00 PM to 4:30 PM, and this includes restaurants too. Only a few eateries are found to be open until 3:00 PM. So, it would be wise to have a scrumptious breakfast, in case you miss the lunchtime. Then head towards the Basilica of Saint Nicholas. Considered to be a pilgrimage by the Christian World, this is a significant religious place in all of Europe. It was built between 1087 to 1197 and exhibits the Romanesque style of architecture. Along with housing the bones of Saint Nicholas, the basilica also has some great Romanesque sculptures that are a treat to view. Later, walk to Castello Normanno-Svevo which is closely located to the Basilica. This is a beautiful castle built in 1132. It is currently used to house a variety of exhibits. You can roam around the estates, as well as opt for a guided tour of the castle. After viewing the castle, make a beeline for a good nearby restaurant to have a quick lunch.

After lunch, make your way towards the Bari Cathedral. Although it is less famous than the Basilica of Saint Nicholas, the Bari Cathedral was constructed well before the basilica. The Romanesque building that stands before you is supposed to be constructed between the late 12th and 13th centuries. Then, you can go museum hopping in Bari. There are many small art galleries in bari that give you an insight into its art, culture, and history.

As the sun starts inclining to the west, head towards Pinacoteca Metropolitana di Bari. This is a large museum, founded in 1928, which houses many paintings and artworks. The extensive collection is sectioned into different categories for easy viewing for the visitors. Then head towards Lungomare Araldo Di Crollalanza.
