Nothing tells the soul of the city of Trani better than the splendid sea in front of which it stands, a sea that has etched the pages of its history and caressed the faces of its people since time immemorial. It is known as 'the pearl of the Adriatic', this city with a seafaring heart, and every corner bears witness to this indissoluble bond. Its cathedral, for example, overlooks the sea, as if suspended, stretching out towards that blue expanse that becomes a gentle and magnetic lure. And if the old town centre is an amphitheatre of light-coloured stone looking towards the coast, the city port is still the beating heart of the city, with its sea life that never fades and flows between the flight of seagulls, gestures that have centuries-long histories and voices that have the soft inflection of waves. This is where life teems with the sea, and this is where locals and travellers gather in the evenings, amidst small restaurants and quaint bars. Because one cannot stay far from the sea.
