Visit the old town and explore the narrow alleys. Here, life goes in old-fashioned Italian manners; cook with the door open, and the neighbors running into and out of each other. The neighborhood should only be visited during the day, where crime is a problem in the area and one can easily loose track after dark.
After your walk, you can take your time and enjoy a long lunch at one of the great restaurants on the Piazza Mercantile and Piazza del Ferrarese.
You can also visit the local art gallery, the Pinacoteca di Bari. It is located next to the sea, and exhibits sculptures and paintings from the year 1000 to the year 2000.
If you would like to see some of the local churches, there are some good opportunities. Bari's most famous church is located right between the heart of the old town and close to the sea; the 1100s Basilica di San Nicola. The church is an important destination for pilgrims, both Catholic and Orthodox. As the name suggests, is named after Saint Nicholas, also known as Santa Claus in American or Father Christmas in the rest of the world. The remains of Nicolaus is still in the crypt, and myth is that one can pour some kind of holy oil. You can even buy small bottles of this remarkable liquid in the church store.
Another church in Bari that are worth visiting is Cattedrale di San Sabino, the main church in the city. A massive structure in the Romanesque style, located close to the city's castle, Castello Svevo. The castle is also open to the public and has views to the sea.
