Ships dock in what is known as the New Port (built around 1850) just to the west of the Old city. During the Roman era Bari developed as an important port on the Adriatic, connecting the Italian peninsula with the eastern Mediterranean. After the Romans moved their capital to Byzantium, the city fell under Byzantine influence for many centuries. It was briefly held by the Arabs and was eventually ruled by the Norman kings of Sicily and subsequently by the Holy Roman Emperors from Hohenstaufen (Swabia). The Norman and Swabian eras produced the most iconic buildings of the region, including many castles and churches built in the Romanesque style. The major area towns have a church or cathedral of this era which is a central attraction. And many have fortresses from that era as well. There are two UNESCO World Heritage sites in the area. Castel del Monte is a fascinating fortress built with 8 sides, 8 towers and many other eights. The reason for all the eights is unknown, but this is a beautiful and well-preserved monument. The other UNESCO site is the town of Alberobello, which has many unique trulli domed houses of ancient origin and tradition. Besides the St. Nicolas Basilica and Bari Cathedral, there are wonderful churches in nearby Bitonto, coastal Trani, and Barletta north of Bari. Bari has limited beaches, but about an hour drive north you will reach several nice resort areas that feature beaches with nice facilities and activities.
