Bari Airport (BRI)
Bari Airport, named after Pope Saint John Paul II, is the largest airport in Apulia (Puglia). It is also called Palese Airport, referring to the nearby residential area of Palese.
Bari Airport is west of Bari, the capital of Italy’s most eastern region. The airport is easily accessible via the Autostrada A14 and a short stretch of Strada Provinciale SP54.
If Lecce is the south’s Florence, Bari is its Bologna, a historic but forward-looking town with a high percentage of young people and migrants lending it vigour. More urban than Lecce and Brindisi, with grander boulevards and better nightlife, Bari supports a large university, an opera house and municipal buildings that shout confidence.
