2. Public transport is one of the most convenient ways to travel around the city. Bus tickets must be purchased in advance. You can buy them in any newspaper or tobacco outlet.
3. You probably won’t be able to catch a taxi on the streets of the city in a familiar way. In order to get a taxi, you will need to book it in advance or find a car stop where taxis are parked. Note that taxi rates are usually slightly increased in the evening and on weekends.
4. In Bari are located numerous organizations that provide car rental services. In order to rent a car, you will need an international driver's license, as well as credit card with the required amount of collateral in its account. Persons under the age of 25 years and travellers who received a driver's license less than a year ago may be rejected to rent car.
5. The most beneficial way to make phone calls is to use special telephone boxes, which can be found near public transport stops, major shopping centers and government agencies. Such telephone services are paid with special cards that can also be purchased in any newspaper outlet. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
