We really enjoyed Bari, whose patron saint is Saint Nicholas. We took a 10€ tour that was fabulous. Not through the cruise line. It was a little Street train that took us through the downtown area and then into the old city gate area. The guides were great and we saw a lot for a small price!

The excursions sent tickets to our room for the shuttle service without our asking. We were going to take it easy on the boat as we didn't see that there was much to the city. We ventured out anyway and it was great. We caught up with a tour agency and they had a train that took us through the city, to 2 important and beautiful churches, met some local tradespeople and saw how some sun-dried pasta was made, and then we were off to play music with a local musician of traditional music to the region. The musician asked for help from the audience, so that was fun. We also went into another store to taste local wine and 3 different types of olive oil, from normal to spicy. I don't recall the third.

We went to the nearby caves. They were the best caves I HAVE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE AND I HAVE BEEN TO MANY. POLIGNANO A MARE IS A VERY CUTE TOWN WITH MANY STORES AND RESTAURANTS AND THE BEACH IS RIGHT THERE. THE BEACH IS SMALL BUT VERY NICE. NOT FOR KIDS-THE WATER WAS ROUGH. THE WAVE THREW ME DOWN.
