Transportation to Bari City Center from Airport

Bari, which is located in the southeast of Italy, is also home to one of the most important ports of the region. The city accepted as the second largest city of Southern Italy after Napoli, has a very important place in both maritime and aerial transportation. The airport is very close to the city which is known with its small square and the world-famous cathedral.

The airport which is 8 kilometers of the city center also known as Karol Wojtyla or Palese Airport. Although the construction of the airport began in 1930s and was used for military purposes, today it has an important place for the tourism in the region. At the airport, there are restaurants and cafes where you can taste the famous delicacies of Italy, stores for those who want to do some shopping and car rental offices for those who want to continue with their travel with a private car.

There are many alternatives to get to the city center. To reach the city center from the airport, you can use the taxis waiting in front of the terminal, get on a bus or rent a car. Once you arrive at the city center by bus or taxi, you can continue your travel from the train station to different regions and cities located near the city.


Your first transportation alternative to get to the city center from Bari Airport, which is also known as Palese Airport due to the region it is located in, is taxi. You can be in the city center in about 25 minutes by getting on a taxi waiting in front of the airport terminal building. There are two taxi companies offering service in Bari as Radio Taxi and EuroTaxi. Taxi fares are generally similar, but you will have to pay more during the weekends, on holidays and late hours of the night. Also remember that you will have to pay an extra amount for travelling with more than 4 people for your baggage.

Although taxi is a much more expensive alternative than other vehicles, especially buses, they are commonly preferred by passengers who have heavy baggage. Another advantage of taxi is that it takes you to your hotel or destination in a short time and leave you just in front of the door so you will not have to walk.

You have to make sure that the taxi you are getting on for reaching the city center is licensed. In fact, there are also taxis that offer service unofficially in the city, and these demand higher amounts from their customers.

To distinguish the licensed vehicles from others, keep in mind that taxis in the city are usually yellow and white, and there are license numbers on the glass in front of the driver. Another thing you need to be careful about when going to the city center by taxi is that the taximeter is open.

Sometimes taxi drivers may not want to run taximeters by telling you that they are out of order, but you can still insist on this or get on a different taxi.


In Bari, you can also add buses to the options for getting to the city center from the airport. Bus stands out as the most economical transportation alternative. Bus route 16 carries passengers to the central parts of Bari, including Aldo Moro Square. In addition, the train station is very close to this square. By transferring to the trains, you can visit nearby places and other destinations.

Buses, also known as AMTB in the city, arrive at the city center at the end of a travel of about 40 minutes from the center. Bus is a more economical option even if it takes longer to arrive at the city center. You can get to the city center by using these buses which operate from 05:00 pm to 09:30 pm.

You can also travel with Tempesta which is another bus company. This is a faster but slightly more expensive option than the other.

It is very easy to get to the other airports which are close to the city with the buses operating more frequently during the summer months. From Bari Port, you can get on the ferries for going to cities like Dubrovnik and Kotor.


Unlike most European cities, transportation between the city center and the airport cannot be provided by trains.

However, you can arrive at the train station located in the city center by using the buses and from there you can travel to different regions by train.

The city center is 8 kilometers of the airport and this distance makes it difficult to travel between these two places with trains.

Car Rental
