Castel del Monte & Trani Tour
Castel del Monte is one of the most spectacular fortresses in Apulia. On this self-guided tour, you'll discover its history on your own and visit the coastal town of Trani.
Castel del Monte and Trani
At the indicated time, we will pick you up at the meeting point of your choice and drive you to the Castel del Monte, one of the most important medieval castles in the Apulia region of southern Italy.
Once at the fortress, we'll give you the entrance ticket to the Castel del Monte and a brochure that will allow you to discover this impressive bastion built in the time of Emperor Frederick II at your own pace. The monarch was so obsessed with esotericism and geometry that you can see these influences in the architecture of the fortress.
During your visit to this castle, which has been declared a World Heritage Site, you can stroll around its rooms and its octagonal courtyard. This figure, halfway between a square and a circle, represented the infinity of the sky.
After an hour's visit to the Castel del Monte, we'll head to Trani. In this picturesque coastal town of Apulia, you'll have three hours of free time to have lunch and visit its main attractions. We'll give you a brochure with relevant information about the great monumental jewels of Trani, among which the Romanesque cathedral of San Nicola Peregrino stands out.
Finally, we'll pick you up in the centre of Trani to take you back to the starting points, where you'll arrive between 7 and 8 hours after the pickup.
