Bari Street Food Walking Tour
US$57.30
Overview
Taste your way around town with this street food tour of Bari, and learn about the city’s signature treats from a private guide. Starting with a walk around Bari’s Old Town, the tour introduces you to standout sights such as the Basilica of St. Nicholas and its sacred crypt. Continue to explore the cobblestoned enclave, trying fresh burrata cheese, focaccia, salumi, panzerotti, and home-made gelato. Finally, you’ll finish with a visit to the city’s French neighborhood where a large fish market is held.
What to Expect

Set off on a stroll around the narrow streets of the Bari Old Town. 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. See the Cathedral of St. Sabinus, and admire the nearby 12th-century Swabian Castle. 

Continue through the Old Town to scout out the best eateries with your guide. Stop at a pastry bakery to sample focaccia barese, and visit an authentic birrificio for a pint of the local craft ale. Bite into creamy burrata as you learn about cheese and salami at a delicatessen; sip wine as you hear about the region’s winemaking heritage; and discover the secrets of rich, homemade gelato as you eat one, of course.

Finish with a visit to the modern French part of the city, where opera theaters, luxury boutiques, and a seaside market can be found. Your tour ends with a hotel drop-off.

Please note: A minimum of two people is required per booking.

Partly disappointed

Our guide, Vladdy, was punctual, polite, well prepared and really enjoyed his company. It wasn't a good idea to start at 4pm because he told us that it was still siesta time - which actually lasted after 6pm! He took us in a traditional barese...More

If you ever wanted to see how they made pasta in the" old country"

This tour of the old town included meeting some of the pasta making ladies in an area where the families have lived for many generations. A real cultural immersion. We also got to see a yelling match between two women apparently over a philandering man....More
