Bisceglie is located in central Apulia just 25 miles north of the international airport of Bari and is famous for its cherries. Bisceglie is a very rustic town where you have ample opportunity to experience an authentic coastal town on south Italy's terms - for better or worse.
This means that among other things you will hear the Italian wives shouting at their husbands from the windows, see cars parked in random places, three people astride a moped and soak up a very different atmosphere from that of other parts of Italy. The authenticity is quite rich and there is a lively port, a large fish market and a well preserved historic centre. There is life around the clock in the towns palm tree decorated Piazza Vittorio Emanuele, and a plethora of bike paths to follow if you wish to see the town on two wheels.
There are also railway station in Bisceglie, making it easy to visit other coastal towns and cities - the station is approx. 1 km from the harbour. On the outskirts of town there are pebble beaches and one of the largest nightclubs Divina Follia in Apulia with room for approx. 4000 people. Quite a blast in the summer months!
