Bari Guide

The Italian city of Bari, located in the province of Bari, lies on the Adriatic Sea coast. The town is perhaps best known for its university and sea port. There are many visitor attractions in the city including the Basilica di San Nicola which was established in the 11th century to receive the remains of Saint Nicolas which are now located beneath the church's altar in the crypt. Also worth a visit is Bari Cathedral which was constructed between 1034 and 1178 and is dedicated to Saint Sabinus of Canosa.

Bari's port is one of the most important in the region and provides a hub for sea traffic between Italy and the Middle East and Balkan regions. The port has two harbours. The Old Port is located closest to the old city and is mainly used for small boats and fishing vessels. The modern new port offers passengers destinations including Durres, Igoumenitsa, Cephalonia, Corfu, Patras, Kotor and Dubrovnik. Crossings to Corfu take 8 hours and are only available during the summer months. Services to Igoumenitsa take 9 hours and 30 minutes and also operate during the summer. The New Port is modern and offers both short-term and long-term parking options.

Patras Guide

The Greek city of Patras is located around 215 km to the west of the Greek capital, Athens, and is the regional capital of Western Greece in the northern Peloponnese. Visitors to the city should head to Aghiou Nikolaou which is the city's most famous street and is only a short distance to the Old City. This is characterised by cobbled streets lined with lovely neoclassical mansions which act as a reminder of the city's illustrious past. A popular site in the city is its medieval castle that was constructed in the latter part of the 6th century AD on the site of the ancient Acropolis. The castle's walls enclose an area of around 22 sq. m and the castle consists of a triangular external compound that was reinforced with towers and ramparts.

There are several spots around Patras that honours the famous Greek poet Kostis Palamas. His house is the most interesting one as is the house where he was born. When he moved to Athens it became the place where the Serao family (from Italy) lived and where the Italian writer Matilde Serao was born. Today it houses the Kostis Palamas Institution. The most famous statue of him stands at Ypsilá Alónia Square.
