  • By sea: If you’re arriving by boat from another destination in Italy, or from Montenegro, Albania, or Croatia, you can conveniently pick up a rental car at Bari Airport.

Useful city facts

  • Bari is the capital of Apulia, a region inhabited by about 4,000,000 people.
  • The city is made up of 9 quarters.
  • Bari has warm Mediterranean climate. Even in winter, the air temperature rarely drops below 10 °C ( 50 °F). The summers are dry and hot, with temperature often exceeding 30 °C (85 °F), so getting properly hydrated is important.

Top destinations and activities

  • Basilica of Saint Nicholas (Basilica di San Nicola). The beautiful church romanic church is perhaps the most well-known landmark of Bari, notable for cathedra of Bishop Elias.
  • Old Bari. Bari Vecchia and its labyrinthine maze of narrow streets is a great place to explore by foot. Pay a visit to the Palazzo del Catapano palace.
  • Fort of Saint Anthony. Located next to the old city walls, the impressive building Fortino Sant’Antonio nowadays serves as home of a beautiful art gallery.

Traffic and parking tips

  • The speed limit in cities is 50 km/h, although in certain areas the speed limit may be reduced to 30 km/h. 
  • Main highways are limited to 130 km/h, non-major highways to 110 km/h, and local roads to 90 km/h. During the rain the limits are respectively lowered to 110 km/h, 100 km/h, and 80 km/h. The general speed limit is lowered to 50 km/h during heavy fog or other cases of bad visibility.
  • The insurance and car documentation needs to be in the car whenever you’re driving.
  • If you’re the driver, you need to have your passport or ID card with you at all times.
  • The legal alcohol limit is 0.05% for experienced drivers and 0.00% for novice drivers. Being over the allowed limit can result in hefty fines and even imprisonment. 
  • The emergency number, like elsewhere in the EU, is 112.

Toll roads

There are numerous toll roads in Italy. The exact fee depends on the route of your choice and the type of a vehicle. See the official Italian toll road website for more information. Use the website’s toll road calculator to find out exactly how much you’ll have to pay for using the toll roads on your planned route. 

Ideas for a day-trip

  • Matera. The nearby city is a unique place to visit, in large part because of the caves and old churches that have been carved into rock. 
  • Polignano a Mare. About half an hour’s drive from Bari, Polignano a Mare is a place where you can first enjoy the beach and then have your meal on a clifftop restaurant.
  • Brindisi. Nowadays best known as a part destination, Brindisi is surprisingly rich in terms of history and culture.

Most popular rental types and cars

Travelers most often pick the Fiat Panda, the Ford Fiesta, and the Fiat 500, while the most popular rental car types are economy, mini, and compact. 

Further destinations

  • Naples. This city of the ancient world is full of amazing traces of its history and full of life and modernity in equal parts. Being the birthplace of a pizza is an added bonus.
  • Basilicata and Calabria. These two southern Italian regions are perhaps the least visited parts of Italy, but that only makes them a more interesting destination. Go for the nature, the people, and the unique cuisine.
  • Sicily. Italy’s largest island should be visited for its cities like Palermo and Catania, endless subtropical beaches, and small inland villages. If you’re in Bari, it’s already practically next door.

It’s a challenge to drive around Bari with speed limits being just a suggestion and roads having a lot of holes but the puglia area is great to visit.

You need to be a confident driver to manage the dangerous driving on the motorways. Drivers frequently tailgate you and never indicate their intentions, pulling out sharply and forcing you to break suddenly to avoid an accident.

Be careful with the parking situations and the blue lines, within which you need to pay. On the other hand though in some places (I.e.: Monopoly) they are reserved for residents in certain months of the year. Be prepared with coins for the parking!!! If you do not speak the language, please try to find out the rules before, as you might run into the situation that you can ask no-one for help..... :O)

Bari is a perfect base for exploring Apulia. Besides the lovely city, do not miss to go to Alberobello, Lecce, Ostuni, Polignano a Mare, Monopoli and magnificent Matera. If you are planning at least a week to spend on holiday, you may go to Naples and spend couple of days there. The car is a must and our experience with Discover Car Hire, Optimo Rent and Autovia was perfect.

The Puglia region is filled with charming and interesting places right next to each other, besides astonishing beaches, that is best to be travelled with a car, that way you have flexibility of choosing where to spend the day, and overnight, and you optimize time as you go.
