Destination Essentials

While Bari's allure is year-round, the best time to plan a visit depends on your preferences. Summer (June-August) is ideal for sun worshippers, with long, golden days perfect for beach lounging. Autumn (September-November), however, is a sweet spot with warm weather but fewer crowds, offering a quieter exploration of the city.

Winter (December-February) tends to be more subdued, a time to partake in Bari's indoor pleasures such as dining and museum visits, while spring (March-May) brings agreeable temperatures and the city comes to life again in anticipation of the summer rush.


Along with charming urban attractions, Bari also boasts a stunning coastline adorned with some of Italy's most splendid beaches, their azure waters inviting beachgoers to bask, swim and relax under the warm Mediterranean sun.
