Directions to Bari from the Airport...


After picking up your rental car you want to head towards Viale Enzo Ferrari. Go for just 44 meters and you'll take the first right to stay on Viale Enzo Ferrari.  Then you'll want to take another right to stay on the road.  You're going to be passing through many traffic circles so be aware of the exits. Just know if you miss your exit, you can easily get right back on an follow the circle again until you do make it.  At the first traffic circle, be sure to take the second exit to remain on Viale Enzo Ferrari. It will turn into a divided two lane highway with a cobblestone median and you'll see large buildings off to the right about a kilometer away. You'll come to the next circle and it will say Barilli.

At the next circle, do the same thing by following it along taking the second exit onto Via Gabriele D'Annunzio. It will also be a two lane highway with out a median, but with a painted divider and there will be barbed wire airport fences on both sides of the road. It turns into a divided highway with a medium and you'll see a series of green panels. I think these are solar panels overhanging the highway. Keep going and you'll see signs for Foggia, Bari and Palese. This goes for approximately 1 kilometer.

Take the ramp to Brindisi/Bari/Taranto. Make sure and take the Bari turn off to the right then keep going and merge your rental car onto SS16. Signs for Bari will be prominent off the side of the road. This turns into SS16/Via Nationale following this along for 4.6 km.  Then you want to take exit 4 and merge on Via Napoli toward Bari Centro. You loop around and end up on Via Napoli a. two lane highway with bushes dividing it. You'll start entering the city areas of business and industry. It gets more crowded and follow this for 4.2 km.  Keep your eye out for  Via Pietro Ravanas, you'll want to turn right. The street turns into a one way. You'll be on one way streets, so be on the look out for the turn.  At the third cross street, turn left on Via Abate Giacinto Gimma and follow the road for 1 km. Then you'll want to turn left on Via Argiro and another left onto Corso Vittorio Emanuele II a two lane highway and you're at the heart of the city.

Airport Car Rental Return...
 

When coming back to the airport, you should be fine by reversing the directions above and traveling back.  There are enough twists adn turns above to make that a difficult proposition however.  Watch for signs and use your GPS if you rented one when you picked up your rental car at the Bari Airport.

We don't know of any options for re-fueling right at the airport.  You're best bet is to fill up just out of the Bari area.  Most of the car rental companies currently operate on a Full-Full fuel policy.  This simply means that you will pick up the rental with a full tank and you should return it with a full tank.  Watch your rental car policy as this may change periodically.  Occasionally, rental car companies will offer a full tank to start off with, but will request that you return it empty.
