Before your arrival make sure you are properly covered, in case you need medical care during your stay in Italy. Check if the social security scheme of your country of residence insures you against the cost of medical treatment in Italy. The insurance must be valid for the whole mobility period. If your valid insurance is going to expire soon, upload it anyway. No enrollment takes place without proof of health insurance coverage.

EU citizens: be sure to bring the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), which entitles the holder to get necessary treatments at the same cost as a citizen of that country. The card is valid only for state-provided services, as private health is not. 

Non-EU citizens: before leaving your home country you are strongly recommended to have a health insurance policy with international validity. In order to get the Permit of Stay you will be asked to prove that you are covered against the cost of medical treatments for the entire duration of your stay in Italy.

Several phone companies operate in Italy. You can go to any mobile phone store and ask to see their cell phone/mobile plans. If you are staying for one year or longer we suggest you request a year-long plan (abbonamento). If you are staying for less than one year we suggest that you buy a SIM card that has a pay-as-you-go/top up plan using rechargeable cards (carta ricaricabile). You can purchase rechargeable cards from any Tobacconist’s. If you sign up for a plan, make sure you find out how much it costs if you cancel and how many months’ notice you must give (if any).

Living in Bari

What to see

“…After dinner, we wandered about in the twisted cobbled alleyways of the old town. The two main streets were well lighted and filled with people, but the maze of alleys, arches, ancient doors and exterior stairs were dark, empty and secretive. On a large square the great Romanesque Cathedral rose like a stately ship under the white full moon. Another piazza was dominated by the Romanesque basilica of St. Nicola. (On a later, daytime visit, I noticed how the contrast of blinding light and deep shadows on the side arcades lightened the massiveness of the building in a very deliberate manner.) Walking under a great Gothic arch we found ourselves on a deserted quay on the seashore. Half a dozen ships lay anchored in the bay, and a sad sound from a siren drifted over us from one ship. The quiet was an enormous relief after the checkerboard of sounds in the old town; punk rock, hymns, sentimental songs and loud voices…”

 

Bari, the region’s capital and impressive for its vitality and human scale, is really two cities. The old town a hilly peninsula jutting over the old port (Bari rivaled Venice in the 11th century), is a warren of little streets similar to those found in an Arab town. The old part of the city is surely the most interesting for tourists (but not only) as here are concentrated all main attractions of Bari. This is the place where you can see the oldest buildings in the city – the so called ancient Barium. The buildings here were built yet in the era of the Roman Empire. In the territory of the old town you will find approximately 30 ancient churches and basilicas that were built during different epochs in the history of Bari. Every religious landmark is considered a unique one and you can hear many interesting mysteries and legends connected with them. Basilica of St. Nicholas remains the main symbol of Bari for already many years. The basilica keeps striking visitors not only by its size, but also by truly rich choice of valuable relics. The church keeps an important religious artifact – the relics of St. Nicholas. Every year a huge number of pilgrims come to the city to see the precious relics. In one of the halls of the church are located ancient icons that were brought to the basilica right after its founding – in the beginning of the 11th century.

 

New Bari is a vivacious, thriving town laid out in the last century on the gridiron plan, with wide avenues, impressive public buildings (including a large theater and the university), museums, concert halls, fine restaurants and ultramodern apartment houses. The central square of the city is a perfect destination for hiking. The square is decorated with magnificent fountains and statues. Not far away from the square you will find a theater and an art gallery. You can learn a lot about the past of Bari if you make an excursion to the city’s Historical Museum (Museo Storico Civico), which is also located near the center of the new district. Fans of theater simply cannot fail to ignore Petruzzelli Theatre, which occupies a beautiful historic building. In 2010, the famous theater was reopened after the restoration. Today the halls of the theater and its scene look truly amazing. The atmosphere here is reminiscent of old noble palaces. Suburban areas of Bari are truly rich in various historical and architectural attractions. Vast majority of fashion boutiques, jewelry and perfume shops are concentrated in the port area and near the railway station. In these parts of the city you can find widest choice of shopping pavilions with all kinds of goods right in every street.
