Taranto, the “city of the two seas”, is a commercial city with a beautiful historic center and urban planning that enhances the ancient naval splendor, merging with the modernity typical of an industrial port. The swing bridge and the Aragonese Castle are famous, the result of a series of reconstructions that took place over the course of history. At the recently renovated National Archaeological Museum, you can admire the famous “Ori di Taranto”, the central work of one of the most important collections of artifacts of Magna Graecia, and amazing evidence of the past of this Ionian province.
About the tour
The visit of Taranto by foot to discover the hidden gems of the city is recommended for those who love calm and prefer to appreciate all the details invisible to a quick eye. You will meet with the guide at the agreed point and time, and the tour will start. If you (or your group) are the only participants, you can propose the guide a particular point and time. All PlacenPeople organizers who will accompany you on cultural tours are licensed professional tour guides.
Costs (and inclusions)
The participation fee for a cultural (walking) tour is € 30 per person and includes the activity of the tour guide, while it doesn’t include meals or anything else.
Some community organizers may indicate slightly different prices depending on the services offered (e.g. the “underground Taranto” tour).
Duration and Period
The tours last about 2 hours, and almost all the organizers leave freedom of choice on the departure time. Available all year round.
Tours generally start with groups of 2 to 25 participants, but many organizers are flexible and also start with one person, or with groups larger than 25. On tours where you visit only one city, you meet directly on site: the organizer will indicate the meeting point immediately after booking, often agreeing this point with the guest.
Alternatively, if you choose a two-stage day tour (check tours of 2 locations) our organizers are available to offer – often free of charge – a ride by car (in the case of a few people) or to organize transport by bus or minibus (in case of groups).
