Private Accessible Bari Walking Tour

Bari-accessible-walking-tourOur most affordable tour!

This 3 hour private accessible walking tour of Bari is perfect for disabled visitors who prefer a short excursion that includes all the highlights!

If you’re arriving in Bari on an accessible European cruise, no transportation is necessary since the Old Town is only about 600 meters away from the cruise terminal! Your guide will meet you after you disembark, and will guide you the short distance into the city to start the tour.

Bari’s Old Town is quite small (only about a kilometer across!), but you can almost feel its vast history as you navigate through the narrow, winding streets, crossing under stone arches and between towering buildings on either side.

This accessible Bari walking tour visits the city’s three main attractions—the Basilica of Saint Nicholas (the same Saint Nicholas we got our modern Santa Claus from!), The Cathedral of San Sabino (Bari Cathedral), and the CastelloSvevo.

Your local, English speaking guide will tell you about Saint Nicholas, or Nikolaos or Bari, some of whose bones and relics still remain here at the Basilica of Saint Nicholas. You’ll also hear about the Cathedral of San Sabino, also known as Bari Cathedral, a prime example of Apulian Romanesque architecture, dating back to the 11th century. Finally, you’ll learn about the CastelloSvevo, a Swabian castle built in the 12th century by the Norman King Roger II.

At the end of your private accessible walking tour of Bari, your guide will escort you back through the Old Town to the cruise terminal to your cruise ship.

  • Convenient accessible tour routes confirmed to be wheelchair accessible (no steps or curbs)

Accessibility Details

The Private Accessible Bari Walking Tour has a 4 star Sage Accessibility Rating because it follows a step-free route and the guide is able to push a wheelchair if necessary. It did not receive a higher rating because you will encounter mild to moderate cobblestones along the way.

Your guide and driver meet you just outside the cruise terminal for this accessible Bari walking tour. There is no need for transportation for this tour because you will not be walking/rolling far from the cruise terminal. The Old Town of Bari is very small and all of the sites are very close together.

When you visit the Basilica of St. Nicholas in Bari, your guide will take you to the wheelchair accessible entrance with a ramp.
