Lucera Private tour: excellent example of roman and medieval town

Tour details:

The tour of Lucera with a licensed guide, starts from the Roman amphitheater dating back to the Augustan age and among the oldest and largest in southern Italy with a capacity between 16,000 and 18,000 spectators. It was built in honor of Augustus and the colony of Lucera, as attested by the inscription placed on the architraves of the entrance portals.

After the visit of the amphitheater the tour continues on the other side of the town, the Swabian-Angevin fortress, one of the symbols of Lucera. Built on the Albano hill in the 13th century, it was an important Muslim settlement (after having been inhabited since the 3rd millennium AD) that came to house up to 60,000 Muslims arrived from Sicily and always loyal to the Swabian family.

The tour continues in the historic center with a visit to the Cathedral Basilica of Santa Maria Assunta, built by Charles II of the Angevin family in 1302, it is thought about the remains of the Saracen mosque.
