We (2 people) recently stayed at this apartment and have only positive things to say. It is spacious enough for two to four people, in a fantastic location right off Piazza Mercantile, and only a few minutes from Via Sparano, the shop till you drop, traffic-free pedestrian zone in the new part of Bari. It takes a day or two to get oriented in the maze that is called Bari Vecchia but getting lost in this labyrinth is also a fun adventure. We received many helpful suggestions as to where to eat or what to do from our host and appreciated her prompt responses to our questions. And as everybody else has said already: the apartment was exceptionally clean and well equipped -- from hair dryer to make-up mirror to a portable fan. And even though there is only one AC unit in the upstairs bedroom, the apartment never felt hot or uncomfortably warm even though the outside temperatures were in the upper 90s (Fahrenheit). We would definitely recommend this apartment.
Places of interest: 200 meters from the Basilica of San Nicola, 300 meters from the Cathedral of San Sabino, a stone's throw from the Church of Sant'Anna, and the Church of Vallisa. 100 meters from the main squares of the ancient village, Piazza Mercantile and Piazza del Ferrarese, and from the wall from which you can enjoy a fantastic view of the whole promenade. At 200 meters Corso Vittorio Emanuele that crosses Via sparano, the fashion street and continuing Palazzo Fizzarotti, Petruzzelli and Castello Svevo.
Also in front of the apartment you will find a bar, and in the immediate vicinity a well-stocked 24h, bakeries, quaint restaurants, fast food, bike rental, pharmacies.
With a 20-minute walk or bike ride, you can reach the free beach of Pane e Pomodoro and Torre Quetta, not to be missed for the sunset aperitifs on the sea!
