Embark on a fascinating walking tour that begins at the historic Castello Svevo, a fortress founded in 1132 and later seized by Federico II in 1233. From there, wander through the charming streets of Bari's old town, affectionately known as "Bari vecchia". Be mesmerized by the ancient stone buildings and narrow alleyways, where you might stumble upon local women busy at work, expertly crafting homemade pasta.

This magnificent church is dedicated to the city's revered patron saint, Saint Nicholas.
