Surrounded by hectares of red sand and olive tree plantations, Bari is a hidden gem in the breath-taking Puglia region.
Bari is easy to discover on foot, with a number of free walking tours available if you fancy it. Bari also offers a velo service and bike tours for those who enjoy more active holidays. If you feel like you’ve had enough of the sun, the city offers a well-connected local bus service, run by AMTAB (Azienda Mobilità e Trasporti di Bari) and you can choose between 1-hour, daily or weekly tickets. Two local taxi companies will also happily give you a ride. Or why not take advantage of the cheap car hire and be your own boss for the day?
Summer is always around the corner in Italy, with temperatures starting at 13°C (56°F) even in the cooler winter months. By the end of April temperatures rise, leading into a hot and dry summer all the way to the end of September. July and August are the hottest months, with an average temperature of around 30°C (86°F), making it the perfect time to take a dip in the sea from any of the beaches in Polignano a Mare.
