The city of Bari in Italy is called the cultural mini-capital. It is located on the southern coast, so to speak, “on the heel” of the country 🙂 It has everything – the beautiful Adriatic coast, clear sea, beautiful historical center, a large number of attractions and even an airport (no need to get from other cities). Bari’s beaches are modern and offer a wide range of activities such as deep sea diving or a yacht or speedboat cruise. Another famous place is the port of Bari. This is not only a beautiful place, but also an important transport hub – it connects Italy with Montenegro, Croatia and Greece. The city is also very popular among believers who come here on a pilgrimage to Bari to see St. Nicholas the Wonderworker.

The Ionian coast of Italy is the southernmost and hottest 🙂 It is also called the “land of castles”. Compared to the famous and crowded resorts of the Adriatic or Ligurian coasts, it is quite quiet and calm here. At the same time, nature of amazing beauty has been preserved here – picturesque bays, rocky shores, bright blue sea, secluded Italian beaches of Calabria …
The southern coast of Italy, called the “toe of the Italian boot” is famous for another maritime region – Calabria. There are a lot of fish in the sea. In general, if you want to take a break from the noisy life of the city, have always dreamed of going on sea fishing or just love seafood, you will definitely like your vacation in Calabria 🙂
The city is located in a small harbor of the Ionian Sea and has long been a major seaside resort. It is also called the “pearl” of the Ionian coast. The sand on the local beaches is almost white, and the water is bright bright blue. Rocky shores and a large number of castles give the area some magic and unforgettable beauty. An ideal city for those who want to combine an active holiday with relaxing swimming and sunbathing 🙂
How to get there
It is best to travel to Trebisacce in your own or rented car. So, from the major airport of Naples (278 km), you can get here somewhere in 3-3.5 hours, depending on traffic. You can also get there by public transport. But you will have to go by bus for about 5 hours with a change in Metaponto. There are airports closer than Naples. For example, on a rented car you can drive to Trebisacce from Lamesia-Termo (153 km), Bari (170 km) and Brindisi (181 km).
What to watch
We advise you to go to the Pollino National Natural Park. It is there that you can enjoy untouched nature and relax from the bustle of the city. Of the historical sights, visit the ancient Bastion, which protected the city from pirates for several centuries, and the Church of San Nicola. Trebisaccia constantly hosts various street festivals, fairs and holidays that will not let even the most sophisticated tourists get bored 🙂
