- Take a seat on the miniature train and set off for the Basilica of San Nicola, the city's protector. Walk down into the crypt that houses the saint's relics and the legendary miraculous column.
- Strolling around Old Bari you'll soon come to the orecchiette street, where local women get together to make pasta by hand.A few steps further on is the Norman Swabian Castle, a 13th century fortress built to defend the city, destroyed in 1156 by the people of Bari themselves and then rebuilt by Frederick II as it is today. Make the most of the view from the medieval walls to follow in the footsteps of the lookouts on their tour of duty.
- Rejoin the train for Piazza Ferrarese, the center of Bari nightlife. Take a photo near the infamous column, an ancient pillory for debtors, and take the opportunity to taste the local taralli, vegetables dressed in oil and a glass of Apulian red. End on a high with a trip along the seafront promenade, the longest in Europe at 15 km.
