For a small fee you can enter the excavation site under the Bari Cathedral. There are layers of ruins here- Roman ruins, medieval basilica, and even a piece of Roman road. There are plenty of explanatory signs which are also in English. The real standout...More

The Cattedrale di San Sabino built on 12 century on ruins of a first Imperial Byzantine cathedral destroyed in the 11 century, now it's an archeological site to visit; splendid mosaics.

Below the cathedral recent work brought up a series of surprises: what used to be the foundations of the church above are really tombs, an older church and many other surprises. Well kept and beautifully restored. Modest entry fee (1 €) and totally accessible on...More

We were on our way out of the crypt when we saw the entry. We almost didn't go in. That would have been a huge mistake. The excavations and archeological remains under the cathedral are astounding. It really pushes home just how old the site...More
