A day around Bari - A students' report


Today we are talking about Bari but, first of all, we would like you to know something more about our city. Click on the links below and you will get some information.



You can also watch the "We are happy" video from Bari to see how nice people from this town are!



Our report

Last weekend we went to Bari (we live in Gioia del Colle, a little town near Bari). Bari is the capital city of our region, Puglia, and it is a big town by the Adriatic sea.

It was a beautiful day, the sun was shining and it was warm. So we decided to go for a walk on the promenade. 



Bari has got a very long seafront! We walked for hours and we even saw boats and fishermen coming back to the port after their fishing trip.

Then, we decided to go to the "Old Town". It is the older part of the city and it is very close to the promenade. There are a lot of picturesque alleys and you can eat the "popizze" and "sgagliozze", a sort of fried polenta cooked by the women of the old town.


In this period the "Bifest", a festival of the cinema, is held in Bari. So there are a lot of events in all the theatres and cinemas of the town.

There are also many famous actors around the streets!
Unfortunately we didn't meet any actor....but on the other hand we saw a famous teacher on the red carpet!!!

  1. Oh, how I want to visit your city! It looks wonderful and your teacher must be very proud to have such clever students. As I am a teacher too (in Norway) I am now inspired by you and want to make a blog about our city. Thank you for sharing. Best regards teacherjorunn
