Let's take a look at the authentic life and charm of "Bari Vecchia"
Do not be surprised if through the alleys of "Bari Vecchia" you see some women washing the floor of the road, or you see the main door of their "tower" houses open!
Probably you will see some "mamma" outside the street making a small ear-shaped fresh pasta called "orecchiette", easy to eat, not to make!
You can ask some "mamma" to show how to make them and try to create the same shape. They will be very happy to talk with you about their "art"! By the way, it could be better (and funny) learning few worlds in dialect!
The Old Town of Bari is a triangular tangle of small streets inhabited from local families which don't know the frenetic rhythms of the modern town and whose life is marked by the sound of the Cathedral bells.
Let's have a look at the authentic charm of "Bari Vecchia" and I will tell you secrets, histories and legends of the most authentic old town of Apulia!
