Driving in and around Bari

Bari

Bari Airport is located a mere 8km (5 miles) from the lively city of Bari on Italy’s south coast. Its perfect position means it’s a prime launch pad from which to discover the verdant Puglian countryside, as well as the sprawling cities and beaches of the Adriatic Coast.

Simply leave the airport by the SP204 and follow the SS16 all the way to the city center. Bari is packed with historic grandeur, with sensational architecture telling stories of the past at every turn. As a result, a Zona Traffico Limitato (Limited Traffic Zone) is in effect, meaning only vehicles with permits can enter the very heart of the city. Make sure you plan ahead and register your vehicle with hotel staff if entering the ZTL in your hire car to avoid a fine.

Paid on-street parking is available throughout the city and is free between 20.30 and 08.30 and all day Sunday. There are a large number of parking lots within walking distance of the historic center too, should you not be staying there.

Exploring the wider region is a joy. The SS-16 road hugs the Adriatic Coast and is a spectacular drive through seaside towns and villages. Follow it south of Bari to reach the baroque gem of Lecce right in the heel of Italy.

The highlights of Italy are within reach from Bari Airport. The A14 and E842 will take you to Naples on the opposite coast in under three hours, the birthplace of pizza. From here it’s an easy drive to the ancient sights of Rome and onwards to Florence, home of the Renaissance and foodie Bologna.  

Driving in Italy is on the right-hand side of the road, as with most of the rest of mainland Europe. The speed limits vary from 50 km/h (31 mph) in towns to 130 km/h (80 mph) on the autostrada – highway. Some these are tolled, but are easy to pay. Our local team can answer any questions you might have about them. Don’t forget that mobile phone use while driving is not allowed in Italy, and that seatbelts
are compulsory.

A quick guide to Bari

Bari Airport is both the gateway to Bari and the surrounding countryside of beautiful Puglia. The south of Italy is foodie central, with sumptuous dishes extolling the virtues of amazing Italian cuisine wherever you turn. There’s also history aplenty, from cathedrals to museums, castles to sun-kissed piazza.

Savor street food

Get a true taste of Italian coastal life by embracing the street food scene here. Wander through the old town and pop into local delicatessens to sample creamy burrata cheese and spicy salami. Stop at a bakery, such as Panificio Fiore, to try focaccia barese, a fluffy pizza-like bread topped with Puglia’s finest ingredients. Slurp rich, homemade gelato in the sunshine as you amble through the narrow streets.

The old town is dotted with houses that double as makeshift restaurants. Watch the deft hands of women twist and shape orecchiette pasta, synonymous with the region, and serve you a plate of fresh pasta with sauce for a couple of euros. Le Sgagliozze di Donna Carmela on Largo Albicocca is one to make a beeline to.

Breathe in history

Stop for a look at the pilgrimage church of the Basilica of St. Nicholas. Dedicated to the saint whose legend became Santa Claus, the church houses his holy remains in an ornate crypt.

Admire the looming white facade of the Cathedral of St. Sabinus. Take a cooling break inside, a place where candles reflect off the white marble walls in the atmospheric main chamber.

The nearby 12th-century Swabian Castle is Bari’s iconic fortress. Honey-brown stone towers are flanked by palm trees while a refreshing sea breeze whips in from the coast. This ancient building is now an exhibition space, so get your culture fix at one of the many art exhibitions or events organized inside.

Discover ancient building techniques

Drive to Matera and unearth an underground city, home to some of the world’s oldest dwellings. Explore a warren of caves in the Sassi di Matera area across the gorge. Reconstructions of cave dwellings will give you a feel for life in this area, while houses are carved into the cliff-face, and rock churches boast perfectly preserved frescoes.

One of the area’s highlights are Alberobello’s famous ‘trulli’ houses. The white, conical dwellings are UNESCO-listed treasures. Learn how these beehive-shaped houses were built by peasants in the mid-14th century. Centuries later, the trulli are still intact. Park in Lago Martellotta and follow the steps up to Piazza del Popolo, where the Belvedere Trulli lookout offers stunning views across the delicate peaks of these ancient dwellings. You can wander through the area of Rione Monti where more than a thousand trulli cascade down the hillside. Shop for woven shawls and mini trullos in the boutique shops that have popped up throughout the ancient houses.

Bari Airport is the perfect access point to the south of Italy. Explore the food and history of the coastal city of Bari, and the ancient towns of Puglia with car rental at Bari Airport.
