Car hire Bari


Bari is the capital with the province with the same name and it is the most important city in Apulia (Puglia). The oldest part of the city is located in the north on a peninsula between the old and the new port. There is, among other things, the splendid Saint Nicholas basilica in the typical Roman style of Apulia. In the 11th century the remains of Saint Nicholas were transported in secret from Myra in Turkey to Bari. Svevo castle is now the centre of the city's nightlife. To the south of the old city there is a more modern part with shopping streets (for instance the luxurious Via Sparano) and a beautiful boulevard (Lungomare) along the sea, where many cultural events are organised.


The population of Bari itself is decreasing. More and more people move to the suburbs. The city has 320,000 inhabitants, but in the urban area there are more than a million people. The people of Bari are considered progressive, or at least less Catholic-conservative than many other regions in the south of Italy.


Bari is located in South-Italy on the Adriatic. If we picture Italy as a boot, Bari is located in the heel of that boot. On the other side of the sea lies Albania. Many Albanians have crossed the Adriatic to settle in Italy (often illegally). Foggia is located to the north-west of Bari, Brindisi to the south-west.


The city is an important economic centre of South-Italy. The modern port plays an important role, with its oil refineries and machine industry, to name two activities. Products from the interior (olives, grapes, grains, almonds, figs and tobacco) are shipped via the port. In addition, there is a great deal of fishery. There is a large food-processing industry, which processes vegetables, fruit and fish. It is also an important wine region.


The international airport of Bari lies 11 kilometres to the north-west of the city, near Palese. It was named after Pope John Paul II: Karol Wojtyla Airport. There are two bus connections to the airport: a regular bus (Amtab line 16), which makes lots of stops, for instance at the Via Capitaneo, Via Ranieri and Via Diaz, and a shuttle bus (Tempesta) which drives straight to the city centre (Piazza Aldo Moro).
By road, the airport can be reached from the circular road around Bari: from the north you head for Foggia, from the south you follow the SP 271.

Public transport

The central bus station is located at the Piazza Aldo Moro, which was named after a Christian-Democratic prime minister who was murdered by the Red Brigades in 1978. Here you not only find the yellow city buses, but also inter local buses.

The train station is next to the bus station. There are excellent connections to the rest of the country, including high-speed trains to Naples and Rome.

Traffic and Parking

Bari is connected to the rest of Italy by excellent motorways, for instance to Bologna in the north. Much of this road follows the Adriatic coast. There is also an excellent road to Napels (and then on to Rome). On these roads you have to pay toll.

Around the medieval centre of Bari there is a road along the city's two ports. The newer part has a clear road pattern, which means it is not hard to find your way round there. However, since Bari is an economic centre for South-Italy, the roads can be very busy.

In blue zones (Zona Disco) you can only park using a parking disc, and only for a limited time, usually an hour at the most. That restriction is in place from Monday to Saturday between 9 am and 2.30 pm and between 4 pm and 6 pm. Parking discs can be bought at petrol stations. In green zones (Zona Verde) parking is not allowed on working days from 8 am to 9.30 am and from 2.30 pm to 4 pm. The parking spaces near the port are infamous for car break-ins. It is better not to leave your car there. This also applies to the port of Brindisi.


Most hotels are located in the newer part of he city, near the old centre. There are also several hotels near the ring road. Bari is an economic centre as well as - increasingly - a tourist centre. We strongly recommend booking your hotel room in advance.

Frequently asked questions

Is EasyTerra Car Hire the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation?
