Trani is a lovely village to explore, wander or relax.
Trani, a historic fishing village port in Puglia, sits between Bari and Barletta on the Adriatic coast. It is unusual as it is reminiscent of the 1950s film sets and was often used as such - the old fashion seaside Italy with its historic buildings that are fading with their casual charm. You can capture the scenario of fishing boats bouncing in the harbor and sleeping dogs soaking up the midday sun next to an almost deserted waterfront.
Trani is a stop on the country's mainline railway network so it is not only easy to reach, it is easy to ship the local products into the main cities of the country as well as world-wide. As a low key stop, Bari delivers a calmness and note of relaxation to a visit to Italy along with a glimpse into how locals live.
See and hear about the history of Trani on this excursion. And while there, you will partake in an olive oil tasting. Remember that olive oils are not equal and differ from region to region, so you will have a chance to allow your palate to compare Trani's to others. The type of olive has been cultivated in the area of Foggia in Apulia since 1400, and the famous wines and extra-virgin olive oils, all with their very own characteristics according to production area, set them apart from others.
- This program includes the olive oil tasting and entrance to the olive mill.
