Situated right on the coastline in the Italian region of Puglia is the wonderful town of Trani. A Trani holiday is the ideal choice for those visitors who want a beach holiday but also want to be in the heart of a bustling, popular town. As well as coming equipped with all the mod-cons you would expect in a first class hotel, a Trani holiday rental villa will provide you with some of the most memorable sea views.
Travellers on a Trani holiday will not be short of activities to indulge in. Amongst the activities available in the town and the immediate area are swimming, sailing, diving, windsurfing, water skiing, fishing, cycling, tennis, golf, horse riding and walking. If you are looking for something different to do then you could spend an afternoon visiting the interesting museum in the refurbished Trani fort in the town, which dates back to the 13th century. There is also the wonderful Palace of The Doges of Venice which is Gothic in style and is now used as a seminary.
If you have enough time left during your trip to get out and explore some more of the Puglia region then it is recommended that you tale the 20 minute trip to the neighbouring town of Barletta. Barletta is home to some wonderful attractions including a fabulous archaeological museum which houses artefacts such as ancient pottery, jewellery and ornaments. As well as the museum, visitors will enjoy a trip to Barletta Castle, which was erected during the 10th century. The castle was turned into a fortress in the 12th century and now houses an interesting museum and an art gallery.
By booking a Trani holiday rental apartment, you are guaranteed to be privy to some wonderful Mediterranean weather during your stay. The majority of visitors head for the town during the summer months, between July and September, as it can be as hot as 30 degrees Celsius during the daytime. If you do not enjoy the warmth so much, then it is best to book a Trani holiday for the cooler months of January, February and March when the temperature falls to anywhere between 8 and 15 degrees Celsius. The annual rainfall amount for the town is around 14 inches.
