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.

Vlora Guide

The Albanian town of Vlora, which is also sometimes called Valona, is located in the south west of the country where the Adriatic Sea and the Ionian Sea meet. The town occupies a beautiful location and is the gateway to the Albanian Riviera which lies at the heart of the Albanian tourist industry. The town is characterised by wide streets lined with palm trees and has a distinct Mediterranean atmosphere and lies in front of Karaburuni Peninsular and Sazani Island, close to a few sandy beaches. The town can trace its history back to the 6th century BC and began life in ancient times as a port, and was known as Aulona and was famous for its olive groves and vineyards. The town was an important landing port for ships transporting goods from the ports of Otranto and Brindisi during the 4th century AD along with being an important stop between the wealthy ancient cities of Apollonia and Butrint. Following the demise of Apollonia and Orichum it became the main port of Illyria.

Vlora is Albania's second largest port and has regular ferry connections with the Italian ports of Bari and Brindisi.
