Project Description


A private van will then drive you to Taranto, also called the “City of the two seas”, due to its particular position between Mar Grande and Mar Piccolo.

An accessible private van will offer roundtrip transportation from your hotel located in Puglia or from the main stations, airports or ports up to the very center of the city, where you will walk along one of the most beautiful promenades in the whole country, facing the so-called “Mermaid Grotto”. Our bilingual guide, expert in art history, will lead you through an accessible path designed specifically to help you discover all the secrets of this place.

The city offers unparalleled historical-architectural examples ranging from Romanesque-Gothic to the Renaissance-style palaces of the Umbertino village; from the Baroque of the Cathedral of San Cataldo (the oldest cathedral in Puglia), to the remains of medieval structures such as the Torre del Gallo.

You will also visit the MArTA – National Archaeological Museum of Taranto, conceived and structured with internal paths anyone can use.
The Museum has one of the richest and most important archaeological collections in Europe, whose extraordinary finds boast millennia of history. Among these, the famous and marvelous “Golds of Taranto”, a truly unique collection of jewels that will leave an indelible mark in your memory.
By the end of the visit you can enjoy a typical Apulian lunch in an accessible local restaurant, letting yourself be conquered by the flavors of the sea that have always characterized traditional recipes.
