Airport Bari, Puglia
Far in the south of Italy lies Bari with the Karol Wojtyla International Airport Palese BRI about 8 kilometers away. This airport handles national and international flights from various German airports. Bari Airport has several restaurants with international and national dishes for the passengers waiting here. There is also a Benetton store in the terminal, where you can find a wide range of fashionable clothing. You can also buy magazines, books, jewelry and travel supplies in various stores. As the airport has only one terminal, which was completed in 2006, it is very clearly arranged, but also modern. Other airports in Italy are located, for example, in Brindisi further to the south or a bit further north the airports of Naples and Rome.
The special thing about Bari Airport, among other airports of equal value, is certainly the small chapel located in the middle of the terminal, which can be visited by travellers and other visitors at any time.
The Italian traffic rules are of course similar to those in all of Europe. Nevertheless, you should adapt your car, which you could rent cheaply on the internet, to the driving style of the mostly spirited Italians. Because the locals are not only with the car on the road in Italy, but also many scooters can be seen everywhere on the roads. And these often don't drive according to the rules but meander between you with your rental car and the other cars. Already when you rent a rental car, make sure that it has a navigation system. Because road signs are not found very often in Italy. Otherwise, you have to make sure that you respect the speed limits with your car.
Refueling your rental car
It is important to know that many gas stations in Italy keep lunchtime and are closed between 12:00 and 15:00. On the freeways, on the other hand, you can refuel your car all the time, where there is usually a 24-hour service. However, there is also the first gas station directly at the airport, where you can refuel your rental car right after you have picked it up at the car rental pick up station. Further filling stations are then located on the A14 motorway in the immediate vicinity of the airport and in the city of Bari itself. The petrol stations are either self-service petrol stations and are called "Fai da te" or petrol stations with "Servito" service.
