Terra di Bari Guest Card will not simply be a tourist card for access to some cultural containers and participating establishments, at discounted rates but an instrument capable of:
• guarantee the full availability of cultural resources;
• to facilitate tourist accessibility and consolidation of the system of tourist services on a metropolitan scale;
• test the first "metropolitan digital tourism ecosystem" that allows all the operators involved in the tourist sector (both public and private) to know the behaviors and styles of consumption of visitors, and then plan effective tourism policies;
• develop the capacity to welcome and promote tourism in the entire metropolitan area of Bari.
The primary objective of the Card is, moreover, to build an integrated metropolitan system for tourism, able to offer visitors the ease, flexibility and completeness of the offer, through the wide integration of the cultural and tourist operators of the area and the simplification in terms of access to information and services, through the creation of a telematic system for the promotion of cultural itineraries, the organization of reception and the full availability of cultural resources.
A single tourist card, therefore, with which tourists and visitors can access museums, castles, other cultural containers, shops and services.
