Trani wheelchair accessible tours have many tourist sights; it's the sort of place to wander along lanes and admire harbour views.
The one really important thing to see is the cathedral, the Cattedrale di San Nicola Pellegrino, which dominates the seashore from a spectacular position at the water's edge.

Religious festivals, yes, but also cheerful, swarms of people out for a stroll on summer evenings, band concerts in the lighted sound-box in Piazza Quercia, open-air concerts or shows, all against the backdrop of the sea outlined by the elegant stone belt of the parapets along the harbour and the docks.
