Guided tours in Puglia (Lucera: Museum, Cathedral, San Francesco Fasani)

I'm not from Lucera, but I spent a whole year on his streets and I totally fell in love.<br><br>From the Roman to the medieval world, from the 600s to the Saracen towers, from the very good wine to the show that stretches at the foot of the Swabian-Angevin Fortress ... I want to convey all this in my visits.<br>

Decent signage. A good sense of the space can be had by walking the inner part and then around the walls. There are good views from the tower.

Unfortunately it was not open inside but you could still walk round the outer walls of this huge castle. Impressive views of the surrounding countryside.

I had the privilege of visiting this site with a local who has a passion for history. This castle is magnificent and enormous and as you walk around the different areas you can physically feel the energy of times long past. There is an excellent video loop playing in the tower that shows a 3D reconstruction of a certain period. This spot is so loaded with history stretching very far back. I was very impressed and also amazed that there aren't long lines to see it, if you're into history you owe it to yourself to check it out!!!

Family took us to see this ancient castle. There was a minimal fee to get in. There were quite a few signs explaining about the castle. The signs were in both Italian and English. I think this would be a good place to take children.
