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)
The total cost of the tour consists of a per person fee, plus a one-time group charge, which depends on the chosen Formula. The cost per person is €110 for 2 people, €96 for 3 people, and €87 for larger groups. The Formula is:
If an organizer is to provide a free car ride, this is not included in the price, but is free and separate from the service offered; therefore, even if you prefer to use your own car, the cost does not change. The organizer’s activity is included in the cost, while everything else is excluded (snacks, lunch, souvenirs, etc.) and entrance tickets to monuments or churches are excluded (although these are optional). The cost of any extras will be agreed upon before finalizing the booking. Entrance to monument
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.
