Don't be enchanted by Petruzzelli

I know, the Petruzzelli theater is one of those attractions where it is almost impossible not to stop to look at it and take photos.

Please, stand out from the crowd and take photos from the sidewalk!

Avoid getting burned on Pane e Pomodoro

Never meet a granny's eyes

The women of Bari are wonderful, those of the old guard even more so! So be very careful with older ladies, their sweetness could captivate you on the spot with a parmigiana or a freshly baked
pasta Never be alone with a granny!

Not tasting "the killer" is a crime

There are historical dishes that you won't be able to escape from, like the assassin!
Typical Bari dish, born in 1967, consisting of slightly burnt, therefore crunchy spaghetti, seasoned with tomato and chilli pepper. Killer as they are particularly spicy (for weaker palates there are those who make it slightly spicy).

Don't always think about fried panzerotto

When you have tasted a good fried panzerotto from Bari , its image will remain in your mind so much that you will start to see fried panzerotti everywhere! Even the moon seen from the Bari seafront will seem like a panzerotto to you (but don't tell your partner, you would ruin a romantic moment). We warned you.

Always remember a "go cheat"

Bari is not dangerous. Go Bari football

Bari and the people of Bari have a great passion, that of football! Here everyone supports Bari, or almost everyone. Do you want to make yourself nice? Before ending a pleasant conversation, saying goodbye and leaving, add a “Forza Bari” and you will always be welcome!
