Highlights
  • Discover Castel del Monte, a UNESCO World Heritage site
  • Taste the typical products of Andria
  • Learn all about the Emperor Federico II's curious life
Full description
Explore the UNESCO-listed Castel del Monte followed by a tour of the historical city center of Andria to taste delicious local products, all with a private guide for just your group.

Meet your guide at Castel del Monte, world-famous for its peculiar octagonal shape and mysterious history. Built 450 meters above sea level by the Swabian Emperor Frederick II in the 13th century, the fortress was built with local limestone, but it’s still unclear what its intended purpose was. Walk through its many rooms and discover the panoramic view that can be seen from the windows as you listen to the curious story of this emperor and his life. 

Next, meet your guide again in Andria, located only a few kilometers away. Here, visit the Cathedral where 2 of the 4 wives of Frederick II are buried. Pass through the beautiful historical city center and have tastings of extra virgin olive oil, taralli (similar to a breadstick or pretzel), and creamy burrata (a type of fresh cheese).  

Finally, visit the Museo del Confetto Mucci, where tenerelli have been produced since 1894 — a local sweet invented in this city. Learn how these treats are produced and have a tasting to satisfy your sweet tooth.
