There is not one reason why Trani is called "the pearl of the Adriatic"…there are at least four! Have you ever seen a cathedral on the sea? Did you know that the historic centre has an ancient medieval Jewish quarter?
And then, there’s the beauty of the marina: the small local fishing, the daily fish market, the restaurants that you will discover just by following the scents. Finally, you will find traces of the great Frederick II by visiting his Castle in Trani.
⇒ POPULARITY: 8/10 yes
⇒ THIS TOUR IS FOR people who love culture and art and who want to discover the most important and representative monuments of Puglia while enjoying a leisurely walk. Trani is part of the “citta’ slow” network and has been named a city that favours a slower paced life.
⇒ YOU WILL BE THRILLED when you admire the majesty of the Cathedral, which will really leave you breathless; it is so white and elegant, in contrast to the blue sea behind it. You will be captivated by the mewing of the seagulls who follow the fishermen's boats. You will take in the beauty of the elegant streets in the historic town centre, the jewish quarter and by the views that open up to you behind every corner. You will enjoy unforgettable moments sipping a coffee or Moscato (Muscat) di Trani, sitting outside a bar that faces the harbour and the sea ...
⇒ DIFFICULTY: Easy
⇒ TIME: 1 hour and a half (90 minutes)
⇒ WHAT TO PUT IN YOUR BACKPACK: Be sure to pack a great desire to relax and explore, a cell phone or a camera to capture glimpses of the panoramas and monuments you will witness. Wear comfortable shoes with treads if possible, because you will be walking on limestone pavement and it can sometimes become slippery when it rains.
⇒ WE PROMISE YOU that you will get to know this city much better through a fullly authentic hands-on experience. You will be pleasantly surprised by the things you will discover and it will be love at first…. visit.
You can choose between two tour options: the shared tour with other participants or the private tour exclusively for you and your group of people.

How long does it take to visit Trani?
The duration of the guided tour of Trani is 1 hour and a half, but we don’t always adhere to strict timelines. Oftentimes, the group may linger more in certains places in the tour. Simply put, we are not so inflexible about the duration time of the tour...
You will visit the outside of the Castle, the Cathedral both inside and out, the Jewish quarter, and the marina.
Then you will take a walk to the Municipal Villa, which also overlooks the sea, to admire the Cathedral and the city from another vantage point, from the remains of an ancient fort.
