  • "Nice trip"

    Reading the reviews just before we boarded made us worry about our choice for Ventouris. But everything was perfect. We sailed in september with the 11 pm boat. The cabin was clean, the personnel friendly. Overall a very good experience that we can recommend to everyone.

  • "Great!"

    My brother and I had a lovely time in the cheap rooms below deck. Dark and quiet, it felt like we were sleeping in a little space capsule! No gasoline smell or anything--don't know why people pay so much to sleep above the cars.

Bari Guide

The Italian city and port of Bari lies on the Adriatic Sea coasty and is the capital of the Italian region of Puglia. The city is not particularly well known as a tourist destination although there are a few sights of interest and is conveniently located for visitors to use it as a base from which to explore the surrounding area. The city's historic centre is located on a headland that protrudes into the Adriatic Sea. Most of the archaeology in the city lies beneath the maze of narrow lanes in the Vecchia Bari quarter of the city which is famous for being confusing to visitors who frequently find themselves lost. Bari's most famous church is located between the sea and the Old Town, and is the 11th century Romanesque Basilica di San Nicola. The church is dedicated to St. Nicholas and was built in order to house his remains, which still lie in the crypt. In the main part of the church there are several interesting sights including an elaborate stone canopy over the altar and an 11th century marble bishop's throne, known as the Cattedra di Elia.

From the port of Bari, ferries depart towards Durres, Igoumenista, Cephalonia, Corfu, Patras, Kotor and Dubrovnik.
