The Port of Bari
Croatia , Albania , Greece (Patras and the Ionian Islands), Montenegro: for years now, the port of Bari has an international dimension which, in addition to ferries, also passes through cruise traffic. Some routes, such as the Bari - Durres one, are active all year round; others, however, such as the connections with Corfu and Zakynthos, from May to September. Obviously the number of ships and passengers in transit is greater during the summer period.
Alongside the modern part, the so-called"Porto Nuovo", in Bari the old port (or "Storico") also survives in which the fishing tradition continues, especially the sale of fish, a moment that defines the maritime identity of the city and which in recent years has also become relevant from a tourist point of view.
In short, important numbers of both passengers and visitors for a port area that occupies a total of about 2.5 kilometers and a half of coastline and which in recent times has been the subject of major renovations and infrastructural adaptations.
