Sleeping on a boat in the harbor
Now this was fun! The boat can technically sleep 6, though we were only two. It's located in the harbor, so if you want to get to old town Bari, it's best to borrow Vito's spare bikes for a flat 2km-4-km ride. Parking near old town is VERY difficult.
The harbor is nice -- be sure to communicate to meet Vito, as otherwise getting in to the harbor initially can also be tough.
We went on a nice day cruise with Vito for an additional price (EU 220), from about 10:30 - 16:30, lunch and swimming included.
Parking at harbor is included.
All in all a great experience.
Vita met us at the marina and showed us to the boat. It was very clean and beautifully maintained
Beautiful weather beautiful boat and a very attentive host. It was a completely new experience for us to sleep on a boat then go sailing with vita the next day. The amenities st the marina were very clean and easy to use .
Fell in love with Bari and Puglia!
We had the best time with Vito, the owner of the sailboat and the highlights were doing excursions with him! One day was spent sailing to a beautiful old fishing town, where we had a wonderful meal and wine provided by him and it was perfect for relaxing and swimming. One day trip by car was to see just some of the great parts of Puglia. I have been wanting to visit the Trullis and Polignano for some time. We went to those places plus so much more! Our last day was spent in Matera, where we were fortunate that his guide who is from there, was available to show us around and explain the history from a local's perspective. Cosomo was as fun of a guide as Vito!
We walked to and from the marina frequently and enjoyed finding the neighborhoods versus just the tourists area. We can't wait to return and have Vito take us to places we missed due to it being a short trip.
A very special stay
I cannot praise Vito and his wife enough. This was a wonderful experience, well beyond our expectations.
Vito collected from the airport and returned us to the airport after our stay.
Vito and his wife took us out for a day's sailing on their lovely boat and the lunch - food and wine they provided was a wonderful - real Italian home cooking.
Vito lent us bikes and using the cycle path immediately outside the marina entrance we were able to explore the old town of Bari only a few minutes ride away.
Sleeping on the boat was wonderful, peaceful and all we could have imagined.
Despite their modesty about language skills they spoke excellent english !
Special guests were you! Thanks for all! Thanks also for the respect you have had for our boat. We would like all of our guests to be like you. Many greetings to Teresa.
Tolles Boot, Ausstattung ist zweckmäßig,ausreichend und sehr gemütlich.
Mein Freund und ich hatten eine 2tägige Tour mit einer Übernachtung im Hafen von Trani u Zwischenstopp in Giovinazzo.Wo wir im romantischen Hafen baden konnten.Vito ist ein toller Gastgeber er hat uns sogar von unserer ersten Unterkunft abgeholt.Die Verpflegung war typisch italienisch (frisch u köstlich),ebenso der gute Wein.Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit zusammen u würden beim nächsten Italienurlaub wieder eine Bootstour mit Vito machen. Sehr empfehlenswert
Stefanie and Alex are two excellent guys, smiling, generous. We did a mini sailing cruise and were very much involved during onboard maneuvers. They dad great respect for my boat, and left it neat and clean. They are the guest we all would like to have
