From Bari Central Station exit, cross the piazza Aldo Moro and walk straight onto Via Sparano di Bari. After 1 block turn left onto Piazza Umberto (just before the trees) and this road becomes Via Crisanzio. Walk 4 blocks and we are number 90 on the left!

From the port take bus 20/ to Bari Central Station which is the final stop and follow the directions above. You can walk (30 minutes) by exiting the port, crossing the road and turning right. Walk for 8 minutes until you reach tree-lined Piazza Massari (just after the castle). Turn left and walk 2 blocks until the main road Corso Vittorio Emanuele. Turn right and walk 4 blocks until Piazza Garibaldi (park). Turn left onto Via Sagarriga Visconti and walk 9 blocks to Via Crisanzio. Cross the road and turn left and we are number 90 on the right!

From the airport there is a train which runs to Bari Central Station every 25 minutes and costs €5. There is also a shuttlebus called Tempesta which runs every 30 minutes from just outside the terminal to the train station and costs €4. Local bus number 16 which leaves every hour also runs to the train station and costs €1 but is much slower. From the train station follow the instructions given above. Note the last check in is at 11pm so arrivals to the airport after 10.30pm should take a taxi directly to us which costs €25.

By car follow the SP73 into the city centre.
