Well, Bari lacked what the other towns of Puglia offered in abundance – the vintage feel, the little cute elements, the slow life… But, don’t get me wrong! I’m not implying that it’s hard to like Bari. My husband loved it. As far as I’m concerned, I didn’t like it much. It didn’t fascinate me the way Ostuni or Lecce did.
Bari is the capital of Puglia and a metropolitan city, which is why I guess it’s different from the rest of the region. I enjoy smaller and quieter places to bigger and noisier ones. That being said, I do like big, glitzy places also. I loved Sydney and I’m living in Mumbai. But, when I’m in Italy and that too, a lesser-known region of Italy, I don’t want the usual buzz. I mean that’s my perspective. You are free to differ.
