A number of UK airports offer flights to Bari, including London Stansted, Heathrow, Manchester and Birmingham. The main service providers across this route are British Airways, Alitalia, easyJet and Air France. On arrival you will land at Palese Airport which is about 8 km northwest of Bari town center. The city can be reached via the A14 motorway. The city metropolitan railway service also provides a link between the town and the airport, and the AMTAB bus offers extensive links to the city as well as more rural locations and cross-country destinations.
The city is rich in history and boasts stunning architecture, home to some of Italy's finest and most revered landmarks. Bari Cathedral, which was completed in 1178, is perennially popular with tourists and is seen as one of the finest examples of Apulian Romanesque architecture in Europe. The city's old town area is also impressive and home to some of the best food and traditional shops in the city. The district has recently enjoyed a resurgence thanks to a number of large scale redevelopment projects and is now the premier restaurant, bar and nightclub quarter in the city. Bari is also famous for its waterfront and has two large ports that are able to accommodate large cargo vessels and luxury yachts. With extended pedestrian areas and some great bars and restaurants, the ports of the city are arguably the most exclusive and upmarket parts of Bari.
