Excursions & day trips
A UNESCO World Heritage Site, European Capital of Culture 2019 and a cave city dating back over 5,000 years, you'll need this full day tour to see the best bits of Matera. The ancient cave dwellings, or ‘sassi', are the city's big draw. We'll check out the baroque quarter, known as ‘Il Piano', where churches and palaces are built on top of the caves. Venture into the local neighbourhoods to see ancient ‘sassi' carved into canyons and visit the old quarter of ‘Civita'. With some free time to yourself, there's a chance to try typical Basilicata food and wine at a restaurant too.
Duration from 4 hours to 8 hours
