Trani is a historic fishing port
in Puglia, southern Italy, between Bari and Barletta on the Adriatic coast. It's on Italy's mainline railway network so is easy to reach, and it's a lovely place to explore, wander or relax. The town is reminiscent of 1950s films set in old-fashioned seaside Italy: historic buildings
fading with casual charm, boats in the harbour and sleepy dogs lazing in the midday sun by the deserted waterfront. It makes a good alternative base for seeing the area: much more peaceful and safe than the big city of Bari

Trani is the sort of place to wander along lanes and admire harbour views. The main monument of Trani is the Cathedral
which lies on a raised open site near the sea. Near the harbor is the Gothic Palace of the Doges of Venice, which is now used as a seminary. The Church of Ognissanti
which at one stage was the chapel of a Knights Templar hospital has a Romanesque relief of the Annunciation over the door. San Giacomo and San Francesco also have Romanesque facades; the latter, together with Sant'Andrea, have Byzantine domes.
