Cattedrale di Trani

Reviewed By FYL003 - Chicago, Illinois

Definitely the number 1 tourist attraction in Trani. The exterior is impressive, a massive lime stone structure along the sea coast. The church had been rebuilt, and expanded over the centuries. No photographs were allowed inside the church. The interior was fairly simple.

Cattedrale has a great location by the sea. There are some seats where you can sit and relax. Inside Cathedral really worth a visit. The columns, downstairs the pictures was very effective.

Steps away from trani marina, a wonderful park to rest. Alongside adriatic sea, just seat and watch the sea, the people coming there. I liked also sculptures by the sea.

Porto

Reviewed By Halibuthunter - Dillon Beach, California

We spent the nite in Trani and walked along the port on the Promenade after breakfast. It is very scenic with lots of fishing boats tied up, restaurants and cafes all the sea and we were there for a special holy day with the fleet coming in to daytime fireworks and transporting a holy crucifix around the port to the Cathedral.

Centro Storico

Reviewed By szi2013 - Oslo, Norway

If you want to visit the Cathedral then you will have to walk through Centro Storico, so you will end up here. It's a charming little town, the one I would like to spend a whole holiday at.

Chiesa di Ognissanti

Reviewed By Terri H - New York City, New York

This is a very old well preserved 12C church. It's very small and quaint and that's about all there is. If you've never seen an example of Romanesque archetecture then here's your chance but if you have, there are many better examples so don't go out of your way to see this one.

Castello di Trani

Reviewed By Mike K - Phoenix, Arizona

Trani was a major departure port for the crusades and this dominating fortress speaks to that history. Almost everything you want to see and understand comes from the exterior. A tour of the interior will not benefit that understanding.

Type writer museum - Diocesan Museum

Reviewed By Steven M - Sydney, Australia

The top floor of this museum houses a collection of antiquities from Trani, as well as original sculptures from the exterior of the Cathedral. The display of sacred vessels and vestments on this floor is very small for a diocesan museum. One reviewer was glad of this. I was hoping to see more of the Cathedral treasures. The first floor and lower floor houses a really superb collection of typewriters. I did not think that this subject would interest me, but the range and informative labels in Italian and English make it a fascinating display, from the very first typewriter made through to computers. The first floor really concentrates on German, American and other foreign typewriters. The lower floor traces the contribution of the Italian brand Olivetti. If you purchase a combined ticket you can also get to see the 'Hebrew Museum' as well, housed in the old original Synagogue.
