  • Tour individual tour least 2 people by car/minivan.
  • Plan: Guided tour of Trani, Castel del Monte and Ruvo di Puglia

The Cathedral of Trani, dedicated to St. Nicola Pellegrino, is the queen of Apulian churches; probably, it is the most beautiful and celebrated building of the Apulian Romanesque style.  Planned in a perfect and spectacular location, it shows the magnificence of the medieval Trani, crucial port for the Crusades in the Holy Land.  Universally known for its unique octagonal form, for its symbolic suggestions  and (known) to be the most mysterious among the buildings on order by Federico II of Swabia, Castel del Monte represents one of the most important tourist destinations of Apulia. Built in the XIII century, it has become Unesco heritage in 1996. The historians consider it an excellent building, congenial to Federico’s life who considered Apulia the ideal place to carry out the assignments of the State and to release his passions: hunting, love and good cuisine. The Cathedral of Ruvo di Puglia, dedicated to St. Maria Assunta, is the one of the most important examples of Apulian Romanesque style. It was built between the XII and the XIII century with different following adjustments. In the ancient building, nowadays called Jatta Museum, perfectly preserved, dating back to 1848, there is a rich collection of objects dating back to VII-VI century BC, which show Pre Roman Apulian people’s life and their activities; moreover,  there are anthropomorphic vases, some Apulian amphora and a proto-italic craters.
