This seemingly endless labyrinth of passages at the end of Corso Cavour that unfolds through courtyards and under arches was originally designed to protect its inhabitants from the winds and to induce invaders from the sea in confusion. Life in Bari goes down the street, during the summer evenings many people sit outside the doors of their homes.
In the heart of old Bari, there is the Basilica of San Nicola, consecrated in 1197 to keep the relics of the saint stolen a century earlier in Turkey and transported by sea to the city. The essence of the beauty of the Cathedral is in its construction but perhaps the most beautiful piece is the 12th century carved bishops chair behind the altar, a masterpiece in which small figures struggle under the weight of the seat.
Bari, an enchanting jumble of streets that are perhaps the strangest place you will walk in southern Italy.The small town of Alberobello, located on the heel of Italy, is famous for its original and charming white houses with a conical roof, or the trulli. These houses dating back to the sixteenth century have been included among the UNESCO World Heritage sites.
