En Balade avec Arianna. Bari. Voyage dans les Pouilles

En Balade avec Arianna. Bari

C’est parti!
Nous sommes de retour sur les rails, ou plutôt Arianna, la guide que vous voyez dans la vidéo, a recommencé les visites guidées après de nombreux mois d’inactivité.
Nous pouvons le dire : c’est le premier groupe, pour nous guides des Comari di Puglia, post-Covid.
Et ce sont tous des médecins, le groupe JPIM Pédiatres, venus de France, et enfin en vacances.
“Si les médecins partent en vacances, cela signifie que le Covid est sur le point de partir”…..
Les Comari l’espèrent, comme tous les autres, voyagistes ou non.

Voyage dans les Pouilles, pour admirer les beautés et ce qui caractérise notre territoire,
le groupe a particulièrement apprécié les villes d’art telles que Bari et son merveilleux bord de mer;

Et bien sûr les Trulli d’Alberobello, la promenade dans l’un des plus beaux villages d’Italie, Locorotondo, et le Top !!!

Tous accompagnés par la connaissance d’Arianna qui les a accueillis de la manière la plus simple qu’elle connaisse.
Et elle était sincère: elle a dit à tout le groupe qu’elle était très nerveuse car cela faisait si longtemps qu’elle n’avait pas expliqué et montré la beauté des Pouilles.
Eh bien, à la fin, ils étaient heureux !

Et ils ont dit qu’ils reviendraient pour visiter tout le reste de la région Pouilles

Barletta – strolling with Fabio. Guided tour of the city of Barletta

Barletta – strolling with Fabio

And who is going to take us around Barletta today? Fabio! In this video he shows you this city, a place with a lot of history. In only 5 minutes.

Barletta – strolling with Fabio

He will take you around the city of Barletta and show you the most characteristic places and the most important monuments, such as the Castle, the Cantina della Disfida („Challenge Tavern“), the Cathedral of S. Maria Maggiore and Heraclius‘ monument, a bronze colossus, a majestic statue over 5 metres high which inspired a curious legend…

The episode of the Challenge is well known and celebrated even today in the city. So It is usually celebrated with a costume parade, and the historical event, in September. But the date of the famous Challenge is 13th February 1503. Some clothes of that time can be found in the Cantina della Disfida, the place where the offense took place. It’s worth a look.

In the Castle there are some archaeological finds, but above all a stone bust which allegedly depicts Frederick II, the Emperor who used to spend much of his spare time in Apulia during the 13th century. And he did a lot for this region! You can visit it everyday, except on Mondays
You can’t miss a visit to the Cathedral and its basement; yes! Because they found during the archaeological excavations many ancient remains, and some decorations.
It will surprise you!

And in Barletta there is much more, especially De Nittis’ Gallery, named after the painter Giuseppe De Nittis born in Barletta. He moved to Paris, and married Léontine who gave him a son. And he did not forget his birthplace, he painted it many times in a very suggestive way.
So this city is very interesting, a surprise for many. Because you can see and touch with your own hands the signs of history, the ones that were truly experienced by the inhabitants and the ones that live today only in the oral tradition. With Fabio, you won’t miss any of these signs!

Let‘s continue our walks around Apulia!

“Crist’, chiam’m’!” This is a typical dialectal expression of the Puglia region.


In this video We explain when we use “CRIST’, CHIAM’M’!” 

In our region we often turn to the saints not only to pray, but also in less appropriate situations…! This is a typical dialectal expression of our region, Puglia.

So Apulian religion related dialect.

Why does Italy have more churches than people?
Because when you visit the historical centres, the villages, the monuments, you stop in a square to eat an ice-cream, you turn around and you are in front of or inside a church.
But for everything else, you find the people and things we are all used to

Now let’s take an example that could happen during one of our guide services
Imagine if during a guided tour, inside a large ancient church, everyone is silent, with earphones listening to the guide, seriously busy explaining the marble inlay of one of the altars, suddenly one of the backpacks falls on the floor on the feet of one of the participants of the visit causing also noise: we would say “Crist’ Chiam’m’!” for the embarrassment and especially for the desire to run away from that situation.

If you want to enjoy a direct experience of this emotion, call us and tell us on the phone: “Hello, We’d like to book a guided tour for tomorrow!
Are you the “CRIST’ CHIAM’M” Team?
Oh Jesus, of course we are!”

Trani – Strolling with Fabio! We’re waiting for you

Trani – Strolling with Fabio

Let’s start our walks in the city of Trani – Strolling with Fabio.
In the video Fabio wants to show his hometown, Trani, in less than 5 minutes. He will take you around the old town, between the Cathedral, the Queen of the cathedrals in Puglia Region, the Castle and the Jewish Quarter, he will tell you about “Little Nicholas”, a pilgrim who became Trani’s saint patron, and the oldest medieval maritime codes in the Mediterranean Sea and we will finish our walk in the Villa Comunale, from where we will enjoy a wonderful view of the port.

Our aim is to show you the places where we visit, and we want you to participate in our visits.
We have thought of showing you the guides of Le Comari di Puglia through videos: during a walk in the historical centers that we propose, when we want to tell you a story or a legend or simply show you some of our ways.
We will also show you the guides who are all busy explaining and collecting ideas during the guided tours.

A photo is as much a must as a visit to the city of Trani, her wonderful views, strolling with Fabio of course.

We wish you a good tour!
Hey! Let’s make it clear for anyone: we are waiting for you!

VIESTE and the love of Pizzomunno and Cristalda

Vieste and the love of Pizzomunno and Cristalda. A beautiful town on the promontory of Gargano, surrounded by a moving legend

Vieste and the love of Pizzomunno and Cristalda

The beautiful town of Vieste, on the promontory of the Gargano, lying on the Adriatic Sea surrounded by a moving legend: the love of Pizzomunno and Cristalda.
The symbol of Vieste is a huge 25 m high stack on the beach. It’s a piece of sedimentary rock that was eroded throughout the centuries taking this shape. This is what scientists say but the story told by local people is a little bit different.
They call it, Pizzomunno and they say it’s the name of a young man who was in love with a beautiful girl, Cristalda.

This feeling was so strong that the mermaids living in the Adriatic Sea were not able to seduce him with their beauty and their voice, because he didn’t want to cheat on his girlfriend. What did those fish-tailed chicks did as a revenge?

They waited for the couple to have some chilling time on the beach and then they suddenly came out of the water, kidnapped the girl and let her disappear in the bottom of the sea. Pizzomunno didn’t manage to save her, therefore he burst out crying out of desperation and was transformed into a rock.

According to the legend, they are allowed to meet each other once every hundred years.

Last year this story has achieved some popularity in Italy thanks to Max Gazzè, who sang a song about it at the most important music festival of the country, Sanremo’s Festival.

Vieste is a small town, in the province of Foggia, at the head of the most famous promontory of Puglia, the Gargano. Lying on the Adriatic Sea, with one of the most beautiful sandy promenade of the whole coast, it boasts a historical centre that is a medieval village overlooking the sea with alleys and glimpses of the blue sea.

A pearl and one of the most romantic walks in Puglia.

CASTEL DEL MONTE: OUR UNESCO HERITAGE SITES. Why is it so different from the other medieval castles?

It was 1996 when the Unesco committee decided to register for the first time among its World Heritage Sites two monuments of Apulia. One of these was Castel del Monte.

The octagon-shaped building, erected by Frederick II’s will, the only enlightened sovereign we’ve had in Southern Italy (so far… you never know) has been a puzzle since scholars have started showing interest in it: why was it built?

Why is it so different from the other medieval castles you can see in the area? Was it meant to protect or just to scream aloud „THE EMPEROR IS WATCHING YOU, EVERY SINGLE MOMENT OF YOUR LIFE“? .

Some experts say it was just a defensive castle or „castrum“ in Latin, some other people state it was build in order to hide the Holy Grail, some others believe it was the Emperor’s sauna, you can also hear people saying it was a private university or a hunting residence.

Where is the truth? You can learn more if you book a flight to Bari and you dial our number.

In 2011, 15 years after the inclusion of Castel del Monte and Alberobello in Unesco’s list, the committe creates a new category named “Longobards in Italy: Places of Power“, a group of seven World Heritage sites connected to the influence this Germanic people, also called „Lombards“, had in our peninsula.

One of these places is in Apulia: we’re talking about St. Michael’s Sanctuary in Monte Sant’Angelo, in the area of Gargano: National Park of Gargano, the green lung of Puglia

Why is this temple so important? Because, they say, the Archangel appeared four times (three during the 5th century, one during the 17th), kicked the pagan oracle of Chalcas out of that grotto, pushed his small foot so hard into the rock that he left its shape and then

he said something in Latin that sounded like “Where rocks are open, human sins are forgiven“ and he also added „you don’t need to consecrate this place, I did it myself“.

Still today, thousands of people every year go there for pilgrimage and say their prayers to that winged soldier sent by God to save us from Lucifer’s temptations.

Very suggestive!
