Bari Airport Shuttles
With over 7 miles from the city center, Bari Airport makes getting where you need to be somewhat difficult if you’re not prepared. Book a shuttle to get you through the trudge, reserving with either limo or shuttle for easy drop-offs to all-in-one resorts worthy of spending all your time in one place.
Understanding the layout of the popular port city is the first step toward knowing where to spend your time in the city. For close access to popular beaches and train stations, stay on the east side of town, preferably somewhere along Corso Trieste, while those interested in staying central should pick a spot just north of the University of Bari Aldo Moro for easy access to trendy cafés and the theater district. Business-friendly types may want to stay on the west side due to closer distance to the airport and Exhibition and Trade Centre.
A great way to always stay on the same page is to slow down and organize. Start after you book your shuttle, printing out your confirmation e-mail the moment it arrives for extra reference, all while coordinating with other to-dos, from hotel bookings to special event tickets. A great way to keep everything in one place is to keep a travel journal as well, which typically come with zip-locked compartments and sleeves perfect for storing extra copies of prescriptions, identification, and emergency telephone numbers.
About Bari Karol Wojtyła Airport
Enjoy what’s on-site while you wait, looking forward to the many shops, restaurants, and cafes sprawled across the upper and lower levels of the airport. Grab a bite to eat at Peroni Bar, a retro restaurant home to casual Italian food, or enjoy the house-made pizza and calzones at deCanto Wine Bar. The lower level is home to several vending machines as well as Briciole Bar, a spacious cafeteria and bakery perfect for lunch and breakfast. Over 20 stores are on the upper level, including the massive Relay duty-free shop, which offers a wide range if products, from kids toys to souvenirs to travel accessories, as well as Bernardi, known around the world for their upscale gifts and jewelry.
Get to know what’s around the airport as much as what’s within by taking advantage of nearby getaways, whether it’s the kid-friendly pavilions and benches at Sun Beach Park or the open waters and windy lookouts along the seawall of La Baia. For something more entrenched in nature, head to Lama Balice Natural Regional Park, an astounding greenbelt located just south of the airport and offering easy access to abandoned churches and buildings, plus a rewarding trail that ends at an old lighthouse looking out at the Adriatic Sea.
Get a glimpse of the natural once you’ve seen the historic, moving through the untamed wilderness and woodsy trails of Foresta di Mercadante for an afternoon hike, afterward checking out the famous Pane e Pomodoro, a small hangout home to an iconic hidden beach wedged between two urban cliffs. Feel one with the city by doing as the locals, the easiest place to do so at Lungomare Araldo Di Crollalanza, a popular 24-hour promenade home to old street lamp walkways, a ferris wheel, and surrounding cafés and eateries that make lunch by the bay and easy dream. Be sure to continue that dream with a tour of the best Bari bites, sitting down for classic Southern Italian at The Lair of the Octopus, or going casual with gourmet sandwiches at Mastro Ciccio.
