Discover Puglia’s authentic charm

Fly from London to Bari with British Airways and you'll be landing in the cultural heart of Puglia. Walking through Bari’s old town is like stepping back in time, with locals making Puglia’s signature orecchiette pasta by hand in the shadows of 12th-century cathedrals. You're spoilt for choice when it comes to historic landmarks. Tick off St Nicholas’ Basilica, a popular pilgrimage spot for Orthodox Christians, the striking San Sabino Cathedral and, towering over the waterfront, the Castello Svevo fortress. Head inland to explore the rustic beauty of the Alta Murgia National Park, or simply relax on the beaches of Bari’s suburbs, where Torre a Mare becomes a nightlife hub during the summer months.

Bari FAQs

Flights from London to Bari take around two hours and 50 minutes.

We fly from London Gatwick to Bari from March to October, and you may find that flights are cheapest outside of the peak summer months when the weather is also cooler. You can use our low fare finder to find the cheapest flights to Bari, Italy.

You’ll find greater value for money in Puglia than other popular regions of Italy. There’s great food to enjoy at every turn so you can pick up fresh local dishes like panzerotti, focaccia and sweet pasticciotto for much less than you’d expect. For the freshest seafood around, head to the early morning fish market in the old port. If you’re stopping for a morning coffee, drink yours at the bar like a local and you’ll be charged less than you would if you took a seat at a table.

If your trip coincides with the first Sunday of the month, you’ll find entry is free to most museums in Bari, so you can soak up the city’s rich history and save your euros for an evening gelato. 

Bari Airport isn’t far from the city centre and it’s connected to it by a commuter rail service that takes around 17 minutes. There are also a number of bus services from the airport which take 30 minutes to reach Bari. A pricier option is to take a taxi – they're readily available 24 hours a day from right outside arrivals.

You can easily walk around central Bari to reach the main attractions, but if you’re heading further afield or exploring the nearby beaches, you may wish to travel by taxi.

You can also hire a car with British Airways if you want to see more of what Bari has to offer. You’ll receive great benefits, with all mandatory charges included and 24-hour customer support, plus you’ll collect Avios points on every rental.

As the gateway to Puglia, Bari is the perfect base for a relaxed trip exploring this famously photogenic region. This under-the-radar destination has a slower pace of life – and combined with fresh seafood, pasta and great local wine, you can enjoy an authentic taste of southern Italy here. 

Puglia’s average of 300 sunny days a year means you’ll be able to take advantage of the many beaches near Bari. Lido San Francesco, to the west of Bari, is a large, sandy beach with umbrellas and sun loungers, and the perfect spot for a late afternoon swim before watching the sunset. Or, head south to Monopoli to enjoy the calm, clear and sparkling water of Cala Verde beach.

You can book a hand baggage-only ticket or make the most of our generous baggage allowance. If you choose economy standard or one of our British Airways Holidays’ packages, each passenger can check in a bag weighing up to 23kg – in addition to a handbag, laptop case or other small bag.

Citizens of the UK and Ireland and EU passport holders do not need a visa to visit Italy, but they will need to hold a valid UK passport with at least six months validity. If you hold a passport from a country or territory outside of these areas, you may need to apply for a visa before you travel. You can find out more about visa requirements for all the countries we fly to at the IATA Travel Centre.

Choose our checked baggage option and you can travel with hand baggage and a 23kg bag checked into the hold, plus enjoy free seat selection 24 hours before you fly.
