    Bari and Trani: Two Apulian Gems

Bari and Trani: Two Apulian Gems

  • City: Bari, Trani
  • Duration: Approximately 6.5 hours

Overview

This full-day excursion will allow you to discover two gems of the Apulia region: Bari and Trani. Bari, the region's capital, is a vibrant landmark of the South while Trani, with its medieval architecture and fisherman's port, is a treasure of the Bel Paese.

Departing from your hotel in Bari, the walking tour starts in Piazza Ferrarese. Located in one of the gates of the medieval city, it offers a charming entrance to the town. The next stop is Piazza Mercantile - the city's main square - with its XVI century Sedile dei Nobili Palace that once was the base of Bari's Council of Nobles.

The visit continues to the beautiful Apulian-Romanesque Basilica of St. Nicholas, an important site of pilgrimage containing an underground crypt with the patron saint's relics and many works of medieval sculpture. Then you will have the possibility to stroll the narrow streets of the historic center, passing through typical neighborhoods where you can see women making the traditional orecchiette (ear-shaped pasta) by hand.

After lunch (NOT included in the total price), you will ahead to Trani to explore this hidden pearl of Southern Italy. The town's 12th century cathedral is dedicated to St. Nicholas the Pilgrim; built in the characteristic white local limestone, it sits on a raised open site overlooking the sea and its splendid bronze doors rank among the best of their period.

Afterward, you will walk through the picturesque alleys of the Old Town to the Jewish quarter of La Giudecca. Four synagogues once served Trani's thriving Hebrew community, but they were later turned into churches.

Before returning to your hotel, you will conclude your tour of Trani by visiting the historic fishing port, where you can spend some free time discovering more about this enchanting town.
