The “Pearl of Puglia”


Even out of season the harbour at Trani is mesmerising. Minutes after leaving the autostrada we were walking past fishermen selling their catch and people drinking afternoon espressos in the sun.

The cathedral looked sublime against the Adriatic backdrop – its stone work so clean after an EU funded programme. Around it pedestrianised piazzas were inviting and laid-back, with the large Castello just 500m further along the bay.

We both thought this is the sort of place we could live in. Maybe we will be back.
