Interesting town by the Adriatic Sea, September 12, 2010
Reviewer: sfvoyage

Pros: Easy access to the village of Trulli

Cons: Excursion to Alberobello did not afford enough time for exploration

I took a five-hour excursion from the port of Bari to Alberobello to visit the famous Trulli houses. The ride was just over an hour, with mildly interesting vista of countryside en route.

The actual visit to Trulli was too short; after an orientation of about five minutes, we only had 20 minutes to explore the unique Trulli with their whitewashed walls and grey pointed roofs - symbols of this village.

The town center has been listed as a UNESCO site since 1996, but the main streets are very touristy, full of souvenir shops offering the same items. Still,the houses are interesting to see and visit; I just wish we had more time to explore.

The town of Bari itself is medium-sized and fun to visit for a couple of hours. The Teatro Petruzzelli is the culture center of the city and overlooks Corso Cavour. However, when I was there, a lot of the shops were closed. Due to traffic congestion en route back from Alberobello, my visit to Bari itself was cut short before having to head back to my ship, but I look forward to a future visit.

Nice but not all that interesting, September 12, 2010
Reviewer: Doug62

Pros: Fairly nice beaches close to the port

Cons: Not all that architecturally or culturally interesting

Bari is a nice city, but really not all that interesting. There are of course much nicer cities in Italy that have fantastic architecture and interesting history. The surrouding area of Bari is pretty, with loads of olive trees and quite delicious olive oils to try and buy.

Bari is also the port city to visit Alberobello, the town with Truli homes. Alberbello is an interesting place and in my opinion the best shore excursion if you want to do something when the ship is docked in Bari.
