Deep in the old town of Bari, Bari Vecchia, you will find our nice little B&B, a friendly and relaxing place that is rich in both history and culture and also ideal for that unforgettable holiday.The name B&B Meraviglia takes itself from the nearby Arco Meraviglia, situated a stone’s throw from from our hotel. The Arco, an arch, gets its name from and old Bari family called Meraviglia who originally came from to the city from Milan. Accessed from Via Filioli, Zonnelli, San Gaetano and Vico del Lauro, the arch served to link the ancient houses of the Meraviglia family however, according to legend, it was built in just one night so as to create a “marvel”, that is a “meraviglia”, the next morning!
