Overview

Hop on a bike to discover Bari’s history and sights from a different angle. On a 3-hour tour, you’ll pedal along the charming streets of Bari Old Town with a guide, and see its landmarks from above and below ground. Visit the Basilica of San Nicholas and crypt; admire an underground Roman wall; and check out historical exhibits at Swabian Castle, the Civic Museum of Bari, and more. The tour finishes with a homemade ice-cream tasting in Bari’s French Quarter.
  • Visit the Basilica of San Nicholas and its precious crypt
  • Step below ground to see an ancient Roman wall
  • View exhibitions at Swabian Castle and Palazzo Simi
  • Taste ice cream in Bari’s vibrant French quarter
After meeting your guide, you’ll cycle into the warren of stone alleys that make up the city’s historic quarter.  A mostly car-free area that’s great for cyclists, Bari Old Town (Bari Vecchia) is home to a collection of sights. See the Basilica of San Nicholas, which holds the relics of the saint known as Santa Claus, and visit the famous crypt.
Continue to Succorpo della Cattedrale, a subterranean museum inside the cathedral, and learn about the excavations of underground Roman walls. At the nearby Archaeological Museum of Santa Scolastica, you’ll hear tales of Bari’s early residents, known as the Peuceti. 
Stop at the Swabian Castle to admire its collection of plaster casts and artwork, then head to Palazzo Simi, a palace atop a Byzantine church. Admire the palazzo’s antique pottery before you pedal to your last stop at the Civic Museum of Bari. Here, you’ll discover more fun facts about Bari’s history, from the Renaissance to the present day.
Hop back on your bike for a jaunt through Bari’s French quarter, complete with seaside views and modern buildings. Then finish with a tasting of local food.

The absolute best way to see the sites in Bari! Doing it on bike allowed us to get into areas that are not accessible for non-residents in cars. And it allowed us to see a greater number of sites more quickly that we would have otherwise. Probably 2-3 miles total of biking, but that is 2-3 miles less of walking that would have been required to see the same things. Michele sp? was very knowledgeable, answered all our questions, and is very proud of the town of Bari, and the museums and churches we visited.
