Bari

After two relaxing, jet-lag-recovery days in Rome, it was time to get the train to Bari on the express Trenitalia Frecciargento. It makes a few short stops, and gets you across about 250 miles to Bari in the southeast corner of the Italian peninsula in about four hours. The train is clean and comfortable, and I pass the time listening to my audiobook and watching my progress on the map on my phone.

Rome to Bari

Bari is listed as my ‘home town’ on my citizenship documents. It’s where my paternal grandfather was from so, when I claimed my citizenship, that’s where it was registered. Bari is a small city of 300 thousand with an old medieval core, complete with a castle, on the Adriatic waterfront. From there, the modern town rolls out to the north and south along the waterfront. ‘Old Town’ and the area along the waterfront are more affluent, while the inland sections of town west of the railroad tracks are densely populated city apartment buildings.
