Visit Castel del Monte and Trani in 1 day
On this Castel del Monte – Trani tour you will visit two special locations, where two castles were built by Frederick II of Swabia: Castel del Monte, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, one of the most photographed in the world, and the Swabian castle of Trani, where the son of Frederick II celebrated his wedding.
Castel del Monte is a particular example of medieval architecture, its ingenious octagonal plan is full of esoteric meanings and the surrounding landscape and the mountain on which the castle is perched give a unique and mystical atmosphere to this place shrouded in mystery. We suggest the external view of the castle, but -if you want- it is possible to visit also the inside (with a ticket). Then you will go to Trani, a romantic town on the sea, which offers amazing photographic panoramas and where it is possible to admire noble palaces of the ‘700. And together with your guide you will see the majestic coastal cathedral.
Organization of the tour
PlacenPeople organizers in this tour love to make their car available for free as a courtesy. They come to pick you up (meeting point should be within the range of 1hr by car from the destination, otherwise a little extra will be asked before confirmation) and you will go together to the first location, where you will spend the morning. The lunch is not included, and you can decide together whether you prefer to stop in the first or the second location (the organizers always provide suggestions, but the choice is yours).
After lunch you will reach the second location, and you will spend the afternoon there. The organizer will be there for you (you will be alone or at most with a very small group) and will be able to manage the times according to your needs: if you want you will also have ample free time. At the end of the tour, you will come back to the meeting point by car. In case you need, and it doesn’t change the itinerary too much, you can also ask to the organizer to be left in a different place from where you started in the morning.
*Costs (and inclusions)
– FLEXI TOUR: the participation fee for this type of tour is € 87 per person with a minimum of 3 people. The passage by car is free, so even if you prefer to use your own car, the cost does not change. The activity of the organizer is included in the cost, while anything else is excluded (snacks, lunch, souvenirs, etc.) and entrance tickets to monuments or churches are excluded (which are however optional). Based on 3 dates chosen by you, we will tell you the date on which one the tour will start within 2 days from the first available date.
– OPEN TOUR: as for the flexi tour, the open tour is also a group tour, so other people can join. The difference is that the open tour allows you to choose the date on which to do the tour; the amount of € 20 must be added to the total amount.
– PRIVATE TOUR: the flexi tour is a group tour, so other people can join. In case you want to make a private tour, the amount of € 50 must be added to the total amount, and no other external reservations will be accepted.

If a free car liftis required in the presence of small children, an extra charge may be required for the rental of the seat, if necessary.
The cost of any extras will be agreed before you complete the booking. The entrance to the monuments and indoor places is optional. The organizers are certified tour guides or tour leaders with a licence.
Duration and Period
The tour generally lasts around 5-6 hours and you can also add some free time. Many organizers are flexible and they can make the tour last a bit longer upon request, but our recommendation is that around 1 hours to see Castel del Monte and 2 for Trani is perfect. The recommended period during the year goes from march to october, and also Christmas time should be included as an interesting opportunity to see these marvellous places in a particular atmosphere.
These tours generally start with any number of participants. Remember to ask placenpeople (button below) to make sure there are availableplaces in the date you choose.
