Take a guided tour so you get the history. Of course Italy is full of churches so you might ask, why visit another. However, this church is not only beautiful but has a lot of interesting facts and features that make it unique.

Historic Basilica constructed in the 11th and 12th centuries contains the relics and remains of St Nicholas (pictured). Artworks on the ceiling (pictured) also worth the visit.

one of the nice churchs in Bari. Spend time inside and go downstair you could sometimes participate to a ceremony quite private in this small place

Both the exterior and the interior of the church are extremely beautiful, white stone, with a few things to alter the pure romanic style. The crypt hosts the tomb of the saint, venerated by many Russian tourists

Visited the Basilica two times. During the second visit, we were lucky to attend the service. Thereafter, the access to the tomb of Saint Nicolas was opened.
