    I was very impressed with the Hotel Boston which is located pretty much in the modern city centre and everything is within easy walking distance from it. It's a good standard 3-star hotel and whilst not cheap/cheap is very good value for money. http://www.bostonbari.it/

    Bari has some excellent restaurants both in the modern city and the old city, many of which offer set price menus at about 10 Euros. I was only in the city for one day and so my personal experience was limited to La Cecchina on the Piazza Mercantile (in the old town) where I had an excellent relaxed lunch on the terrace which fronts onto the square.

    Shopping - plenty of top quality places around.

    As to heritage and museums - Bari's Old City is one of Europe's best-preserved Medieval cities and has so far resisted becoming overly commercialised. There's some magnificent churches and the old city is well worth just wandering and exploring.

    The Norman/Schwabian castle is certainly imposing but I didn't have time to visit it. It certainly looks worth a visit and the entrance fee is only a couple of Euros.

    As I mentioned I only had a short visit but for a definitive page here on VT check out my friend Aldo's - "BARI" - Bari by Ronaldinho86

    if you wanted a good day trip to somewhere else nip down to lecce - such a pretty little city - with a great vibe and packed with honey coloured spanish inspired churches

    Hey Jen. Don't put the guy off the Bari visit by suggesting other places to go. Next time I get to that neck of the woods I'm going to have at least a week in Bari and I reckon a week won't be enough.

    HA! There's lots of bars in Bari (maybe that's why it's so-named) HIC! LOL ;)
