What to expect

Explore the city of Matera, a UNESCO site and the 2019 European Culture Capital. Discover a unique world of stone, unlike any other. Among alleys, hidden churches and cave houses, you will have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the history and culture of the city.

This tour starts from the Church of San Francesco, in the historic center of the city, and continues along a panoramic road made up of narrow streets and winding alleys. Arriving at the Rupestre Church of Sant'Antonio Abate, you will find a surprise inside: an example of traditional Materan culture. The tour then continues along Via Madonna delle Virtù and Porta Pistoia (Pert P'stèl), towards a typical Matera cave-house, which the tour permits you to visit. You can finally go into the city to discover local crafts before concluding the tour with a tasting of typical products.
