1) Via Venezia, the old Bari wall
Probably the first road you will take when arriving in Bari vecchia .
Via Venezia is the road that from Piazza del Ferrarese , one of the main entrance squares to the ancient village, will accompany you along the splendid wall that surrounds a full-bodied side of Bari Vecchia .

How not to mention, among the streets to visit in old Bari a, the suggestive Strada Arco Basso , renamed as the via delle orecchiette ?
This alley, in addition to being characterized by the typical houses of the neighborhood, is famous for the ladies who prepare and sell fresh pasta every day in front of the hundreds of tourists who cross the street every day. A tasty and engaging attraction that over time has become a ritual for those who look out for the first time in the oldest district of Bari . Not to be missed.
3) Strada Palazzo di Città and the Bari focaccia
Another very interesting street to take is S trada Palazzo di Città .
In this street, very popular as it is close to Piazza Mercantile , another historic square in Bari vecchia , you will have the opportunity to admire the architecture of some houses in the ancient village and, above all, to taste the legendary focaccia from Bari . In fact, on this street there is a famous oven that has been preparing focaccia since 1930, one of the typical products of Bari that satisfies the palates of young and old at any time of the day.

4) Strada del Carmine / Strada delle Crusades
Finally, and certainly not in order of importance, two roads joined by the same route: Strada del Carmine and Strada delle Crociate .
This long road connects Basilica of San Nicola with the Cathedral of San Sabino and along the way you will find several nice shops, small bars, stalls with fruit and ladies who prepare and fry sgagliozze and popizze (other typical Bari products that you can't help but taste) .
