A must see: the Bari waterfront, one of the longest and most beautiful in Italy and Europe.
The seafront of Bari , in addition to being one of the most characteristic places in the city, is also considered among the most beautiful in Italy and among the longest in Europe .
The waterfront dates back to the first half of the 20th century and is made up of a row of black cast iron street lamps (197 to be exact) which over the years have become become true symbols of this city .
The seafront starts from the boundary wall of the port of Bari and reaches the famous beach town Bread and Tomato , for a length of about 3 Km. There would then be another area of the seafront which however is slightly decentralized and starts from the area of the famous Fiera del Levante and then ends in a popular district of Bari further north, also passing by the characteristic lighthouse of the city .
Every day thousands of tourists and people from Bari walk along the promenade of Bari , some for work, some for jogging, some to enjoy a romantic moment; among these there are also those who simply want to stop and immortalize the beauty of the sea with the shades of its sunsets reflected in the water.
In short, Bari manages to give emotions even just walking among its characteristic street lamps or breathing the sea air; a historic, beautiful , lively and at the same time relaxing place cannot go unnoticed when you come to Bari .
Another interesting aspect that is certainly useful to know before walking towards the seafront concerns the fishermen's markets set up respectively on the molo Sant'Antonio and the m ol San Nicola ; these are two strategic points of the Bari promenade from where it is possible not only to have an overview of the splendid promenade of the city, but also to try the famous street food alla Bari consisting of exquisite raw seafood (called raw seafood from Bari) .
In fact, if you have an unbridled desire to enjoy Bari and its seafront at 360 degrees it will surely also be your interest to try the flavors offered by the sea.
The people of Bari love eating raw seafood and this practice is normally associated with a beautiful panorama (the sea ) and an “iced” drink as they say in Bari (preferably Peroni, beloved by the people of Bari) .
If this doesn't scare you and you want to try the taste of this very original street food , the advice is to look out at m ol San Nicola ( the old port of Bari) where you will find nice fishermen ready to let you taste the fresh catch of the day.
In short, the seafront of Bari is a difficult experience to forget, let's talk about history, culture, nature and flavors, all incorporated in a setting of sun and scents. Your experience in Bari can only pass through this area, a symbol of the city and of baresity; otherwise it would be very difficult to say that you have "really" seen Bari.
Seeing is believing.
