    The plaza in front allows beautiful pictures, and among them the saint’s sculpture.

    As the cathedral, the Romanesque style had reach its peak, with high, open spaces. The Baroque cieling, even as beautiful as it is, looks out of place in this 12 C building.

    The crypt shouldn’t be missed. When we went, the saint’s tomb was closed to the public, but the Byzantine icon and the columns are worth the visit. Notice the different capitals on each column.

    Strolled around in the old town. Very cozy with narrow streets and alleys. The laundry hanged to dry over your head. Elderly ladies – "nonne" – making fresh Orecchiette out on the street, with children around. Bought lovely ice cream in one of the many ice cream places. Happy to go back.

    Sometimes tourists concentrate on the Basilica of San Nicola and ignore the Cathedral. That would be a mistake. This fine Romanesque cathedral features an austere exterior and a majestic interior. Do not forget to go down to the crypt which is beautifully decorated.

    You are here, you are going to go in. But don't expect much. The outside is extremely impressive with its medieval walls and wide moat. But the inside has been abused and used over the years so that its original content has been obliterated. There are a few galleries with some interesting sculptures on display, but basically it's an empty shell. They don't charge much to get in, so you don't feel as though you have been ripped off. If you do go, check out the ice cream shop across from the entrance, Gentile. That will not disappoint you.

    Just returned from 3 nights in Bari where weather was a warm 22 degrees during the day and sunny (apparently had rained for most of the previous week). A lovely city for a short break in good weather - if bad weather you probably need to like churches and shopping) . The old town is nice with plenty of places to eat. The Piazza Mercantile and the Piazza Del Ferrarese have plenty of places to eat and life in them until late in the evening. Just outside the old town is Corsa Vittoria Emanuele 11, which has lots of restaurants, and off this are many busy streets which lead down towards the railway station (a 10-15 walk from the old town) including the Via Sporano Da Bari which is full of designer shops. On top of all that the sea is a few minutes walk away with mostly nice views and walks-only bit i wouldn't recommend is the port side of the promontory (Corso Antonio De Tulia) which really has only the entry to the port. This city has a large University and was rammed with people on Saturday night and to a slightly lesser extent Sunday and had a nice feel to it. A place worth a visit
