Bari



Capital city of the Metropolitan City of Bari and of the Apulia region, Bari overlooks the Adriatic Sea and is related to a strong trading tradition, so that it is now a crucial place as regards the commercial sector and the connections with Eastern Europe and the Middle East. The city is divided into two parts: the old town, Bari Vecchia, located on a small peninsula standing between the two harbours, and the new part, characterized by large streets arranged within a “chessboard” structure and developed since the mid of the last century. The old town, grown on an earlier Roman and pre-Roman nucleus, hosts most of the monuments and ancient buildings of the city. Among them stands out the Basilica of St. Nicholas with the relics of the patron saint of the city. This peculiarity has made Bari together with its Basilica one of the most favourite centre by the Orthodox Church in Western Europe. Among the other points of interest of the city, the Swabian Castle was built by Fredrick II in the XIII century and the Cathedral of St. Sabin represents an important example of Apulian Romanesque style. The entire province of Bari covers part of the Murge upland and the Adriatic coast at the opposite side. It includes some well-known tourist centres, such as Alberobello with its trulli, Castellana Caves and the unique atmosphere of Monopoli, Locorotondo and Polignano a Mare with their historical heritage.

Bat



BAT is a province in northern Apulia established in 2009 and connecting the cities of Barletta, Andria and Trani. An area beloved by Frederick II of Swabia, today it is commonly referred to as the "Imperial Apulia". Here art is very spread, ranging from the emblem of Andria and Castel del Monte belonging to UNESCO World Heritage List, to Frederick's Castle in Trani and the splendid cities of art such as Barletta, recognized as a city of art for its architectural beauties. Not to be missed are the beautiful landscapes of the Alta Murgia National Park, that extends over the entire province. The Bat province is predominantly flat and hilly and presents, inland, a landscape consisting of light undulations and depressions, with karst phenomena represented by the so-called "puli". In particular, Canosa is one of the places that best tells the ancient origins of this land. In this area have been discovered remains of necropolises, underground spaces used for various functions such as hypogea, mausoleums and numerous finds that have made this city one of the most important archaeological sites in Apulia.

Brindisi



A city in Apulia and capital of the namesake province, Brindisi, thanks to its particularly advantageous and protected position, is an important harbour in the low Adriatic, that still today holds important touristic and commercial connections from and to the overseas countries. The city preserves some remains of archaeological interest, including the Forum and the Roman thermal baths and columns, in addition to numerous Romanesque constructions, such as the castle of Frederick II of Swabia dating back to the Middle Ages. Significant is the cult of “tarantism”, which blends pagan and Christian traditions. In fact, in the past it was believed that women who showed hysteria behaviours were intoxicated by the tarantula bite. The province of Brindisi is the smallest and the least populated, surrounded by centuries-old olive trees and farms in the territories of the Itria Valley as well as by marvellous beaches, including the protected sea area of Torre Guaceto that stretches over a 8-kilometre-long coastal trait. Ancient towns dominated by defensive fortress and watchtowers tell the story related to Frederick II of Swabia and the Angevin domination, without forgetting the even more ancient evidences of the Messapian presence in prehistoric times.

A city in Apulia and capital of the namesake province, Lecce is located between the Murge and the Serre mountains, in the middle of the Salento peninsula. The city has a trapezoidal plan, with narrow, winding streets in the old city centre, that are wider and straight in the newer districts outside the circle of the walls. Known as "the Florence of the South", it owes its characteristic appearance to the numerous Baroque buildings with a particular and picturesque style made of local stone. Among the major monuments stand the Cathedral of the XII century, the Basilica of the Holy Cross, representing the highest expression of the Leccese Baroque style, and St. Orontius square that contains, within its area, the city's history.

Taranto



A city in Apulia and capital of the namesake province, Taranto is known as "the City of the two seas" for its geographic location straddling both Mar Grande and Mar Piccolo and the land of the dolphins, which owes its name to a historic establishment of a group of cetaceans. Taranto is also a "Spartan City", having been founded by the Spartans as the only colony located outside the Greek territory. In the old city centre, considerable interest is attributed to the Romanesque Cathedral, the ancient Aragonese Castle and the National Archaeological Museum (Marta), among the most important museums in Italy and famous for the richness and rarity of the finds retained. The province of Taranto extends forming an arched shape around the northern part of the namesake Gulf, with a coastal flat strip that goes raising inland in the Murge uplands. From the town of Martina Franca and the beautiful ceramics, known throughout the world, produced by the craftsmen in Grottaglie, to Crispiano's numerous farms and the beaches in Castellaneta Marina. Not to be missed is a visit to the heart of the Ravines Park, an area rich in natural environments made even more striking by the visible traces of a very ancient history.
