Bari Itlay Port and Attractions
In the ancient times when the Romans had arrived at Bari, Italy, it was already a thriving center and later became the official destination of Byzantine governor of Southern Italy. It is also an important place of pilgrimage as the remains of St. Nicholas is found here. The King of Naples in 1813 expanded the city giving it what it is now--a pattern of gridded street, piazzas, and wide avenues. Mussolini then added a university leaving behind trail of Fascist architecture. Unfortunately, Bari was bombed in 2nd World War, but the city today shows no sign of the destruction it went through. This speaks about the zeal of the city for commercial growth. Furthermore,the huge investment in redeveloping the city has given Bari the look and status it has now.
Fortunately despite the bombing, the medieval buildings and other remains are still there making Bari a place of historical significance as well. This commercial hub is one of the most prosperous cities in Southern Italy and has numerous dining and shopping options for you. So doing some gift shopping here will not be a bad idea.
