Trani is located on the Adriatic coast of Puglia Region, Southern Italy. This city is part of the Andria-Barletta-Trani joint province, which you can also find under the acronym BAT.
The nearest airport to Trani is the International Karol Wojtyła Airport in Palese, close to Bari. The Main Train Station leads you right in the middle of the city, making enjoyable a good walk through the monuments of the marine city. In particular, we suggest a walking tour to appreciate the little details of the typical bright stones of Trani.
The town extends its stone path along with the port with a small peninsula: here, you can visit the Cathedral of Saint Nicola Pellegrino. Near the Cathedral, you can see the Museo Diocesano with its collection of sculptures and archaeological finds from Trani churches.
Another must-see place in Trani is the Castello Svevo: with its unique waterfront position, it was built by the Holy Roman Emperor Frederick II, and it is one of his many other Southern Italian fortresses.
If you are a wine lover, here you can try a specialty, most appreciated during the end of meals: the Moscato of Trani. It is a yellowish colored wine, with a sweet and fruity taste, perfect to accompany desserts!
We suggest to have also fresh ice cream by artisans during the hot season: it can be the best companion during a calm walk on the city’s waterfront! Seafood is one of the most favorite dishes even by locals and residents of neighboring towns: during the hottest season, the restaurants here are quite popular.
This city has inside all the “Apulian factors”: sea, good food, and fantastic landscapes. Follow our suggestions and have fun during your stay in this particular and stunning city of Southern Italy!
