Full description
Depart Bari and head towards Trani, the so-called Pearl of the Adriatic sea. Start the walking tour from the outside of the Swabian Castle, built on the sea by the Swabian Emperior Federico II, and then proceed in the direction of the fascinating Cathedral on the sea which was built in the Romanico Pugliese art style.

Explore the alleys of the historic center including La Giudecca, the medieval Jewish quarter that survived until the 15th-century where you can visit the Sant'Anna Synagogue Museum. End the walking tour of Trani with a stroll to the port, once a destination for crusaders, pilgrims, and merchants. Witness the fisherman selling fresh fish.

Continue on towards Castel del Monte, the main monument visited in Puglia. Marvel at the UNESCO site located in the heart of the Alta Mugia Park with splendid views of the surrounding olive groves. The octagonal-shaped castle hides many mysteries, starting with its use in the Middle Ages. Learn about the extravagant personality of Emperor Frederick II of Swabia. Return to Bari at the end of the tour.
