Trani surroundings

There is a sophisticated feel to the beautiful town of Trani, especially in the summer when the marina-side bars are packed. It is a beautiful area to discover, with its medieval churches, glossy limestone streets and crumbling yet charming houses. The cathedral, pale against the deep-blue sea, is the town's most captivating sight.
