Historical and geographical hints


Bari, the regional capital of Apulia, has always been an important trade centre with the East and its port, together with that of Brindisi, is the most important port of call in the low Adriatic sea. It is the capital of one of the most fertile agricultural regions and, in southern Italy, it is second only to Naples in terms of population and economic weight. Bari is a trade centre of agricultural products and has a big industrial importance.

The town boasts a historic centre (known as “Barivecchia”) and a big nineteenth-century quarter with a checkered map (the Murat quarter).


Moreover, Bari is the base of a prestigious University of the Study, one of the biggest in southern Italy, and of the polytechnic university. Besides the two public universities, the town numbers many publishing houses (among which the famous publishing house “Laterza”), some daily newspapers (“La Gazzetta del Mezzogiorno” stands out among them) and the Petruzzelli theatre.

Currently, in Bari, the service sector is developing and there is also a big development in the industrial field. A big infrastructure renewal is also taking place and involves the port, the airport, the interport and the railway.



Bari is characterized by a Mediterranean climate with mild winters and warm, long and often very humid summers. Thanks to the mitigating action of the Adriatic Sea, which laps the town, the climate of Bari is typically maritime, with seasonal temperature ranges less marked.  The mild climate, the beautiful days and the mix of sea and sun offer a summer atmosphere all year round. In March, the days are warmer and people who love the sea can go to the beach and enjoy the natural landscape.
