There are many sights to see in Bari and getting to them is easy by driving. Popular sites of interest include the famous 11th century Church of San Nicola and the equally fascinating, but less visited, 12th century Church of San Sabino.

If you’re intent on exploring beyond Bari, the old town of Altamura is well worth a visit. It's just 28 miles southwest of Bari and can easily be reached by car in under an hour. Altamura is an ancient town and has some terrific architecture, including the Romanesque, a 13th century Altamura Cathedral. The whole town has a unique charm and atmosphere, and spending time in Altamura is indeed time well spent. Alternatively, a 45-minute drive on the coast road south to Monopoli, with its castles and cathedral, is another rewarding out-of-town trip.
Compared to larger Italian cities, such as Rome and Milan, Bari is a much calmer city to drive in. It has its share of rush hour traffic congestion and restricted traffic zones (ZTL), but with a little extra planning, you can easily avoid these both. Free parking in Bari is available, but mostly outside busy commercial areas. Paid parking spaces are cheaper the further you park from the city centre. Fortunately, Bari’s attractions are spread throughout the city, so your sightseeing activities needn’t be limited by where you decide to park.
