Where to to stay in Bari.

Bari Vecchia

I recommend staying in the Bari Vecchia area because it is so beautiful. This is the old town, and it is full of charm and history. However it can be more expensive than other areas.

Other great neighbourhoods include the Murat Quarter, Bari Palese and San Nicola Stadium neighbourhood.

Murat

Hotels in the Murat Quarter are centrally located, close to the promenade and perfect for first time vistors. Murat is within walking distance of most restaurants, attractions, the train station and Bari Vecchia.

Bari Palese

Hotels in Bari Palese are good for those who like a slightly quieter trip, there is still lots to do but it is not in the city centre so it is less touristy. It’s also close to the airport, and there are lovely beaches.

San Nicola Stadium

Hotels in San Nicola stadium are good for events at the stadium, plus it’s well connected so you can get slightly cheaper accommodation with easy transport links.

Aiport Rooms

Finally if you just need a room very close to the airport for a quick layover, I recommend the B&B AIRPORT BARI DELUXE28. It’s a 20 minute walk to the terminal or 2 minute taxi ride. The location instructions are easy to follow and they provide a continental breakfast in the room, plus some communal breakfast services too.
