Taranto : Michelin's recommendations
The town of Taranto was founded by the Greeks in the 7C BC, and was conquered by the Romans four centuries later. Its geographic location at the end of a road enclosed by two fortified islands ensured that it was a well-defended military port. Taranto is also known for its impressive Holy Week ceremonies and processions. One of these, lasting 24 hours, crosses the town at an incredibly slow pace – another lasts an equally impressive 17 hours!
