Bari, Italy

Bari, Italy is a southern Italian town on the Adriatic.

During the middle ages Bari was a center for slave trade. The Slavic slaves were captured by the Republic of Venice and destined for parts of what is now Northern Africa and southern Spain.

Bari also has the unwelcomed distinction of being the location of a European chemical warfare disaster during World War II.
On the bright side, the city has a 12th century castle and two churches dating to the middle ages.
