Photographer's Note

Located in the capital of Italy's Puglia region, the Port of Bari is one of the most important ports in the region. It stands as a gateway between Italy and the Middle East and Balkan regions.
The port's facilities include a tourist information office, banking facilities and several shops situated inside the port itself.
The facility also houses a cruise terminal with a coffee shop among other eating and shopping establishments.

Bari's old city district is rich in history. The labyrinth of streets and alleyways reveal architecture and cathedrals dating back 900 years.
Bari is also where we find a Cathedral dedicated to Saint Nicholas, also called Nikolaos of Myra, who was a historic 4th-century saint and Greek Bishop of Myra (Demre, in Lycia, part of modern-day Turkey). Because of the many miracles attributed to him he is also known as Nikolaos the Wonderworker. He had a reputation for secret gift-giving, such as putting coins in the shoes of those who left them out for him, and thus became the model for the modern day Father Christmas or Santa Claus.
