Full description
Your tour will begin as a comfortable minivan picks up you from Bari, at which point you will travel to Matera. Once having arrived, meet your licensed tour guide that will show you this stone city, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Matera is one of the most evocative cities in Italy, and was actually chosen as the 2019 European Capital of Culture. Characterized by the famous caves that were inhabited up until the first half of the 900s, Matera consists of two old neighborhoods: Sasso Barisano and Sasso Caveoso. Through these areas you will enjoy a guided walk, with views over the Murgia Materana Park. Your tour guide will show you houses and churches built in the caves, as well as the recently restored cathedral, which was edified starting from the year 1230. In the afternoon, you will travel back to Bari by minivan.

A very interesting guide with a very good level of English who will explain the history of the city to you with passion and answer your questions with precision and barely hidden enthusiasm. She will take you through the typical streets of Matera on a 2-hour guided tour. It should be noted, however, that visits to buildings are chargeable and not included in the reservation.

Turisti in Puglia excellent at communicating with us. They let us know so what to expect throughout our day and provided us with detailed information. Our driver arrived early (which was perfect for us as we were at the pick-up point early). The driver was courteous, kind and professional. Our on-site tour guide met us as soon as we arrived and immediately began sharing his wealth of knowledge. I highly recommend this tour and this tour company.
