Tour description

There’s never been a better time to visit Matera, a unique UNESCO site — and this tour makes the sightseeing logistics simple. The Sassi of Matera, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1993, are a unique place with extraordinary charm which testify to how man has lived for millennia in a fairy-tale environment. The Sassi of Matera are connected to the modern city center through numerous alleys that create a continuous exchange between these two urban environments. Our journey starts with a walking tour of the famous “Sassi” (historical cave dwellings). The tour continues through the alleys and streets of the Sassi, the natural setting of several films such as 'The Passion of the Christ' by Mel Gibson and 'The Gospel According to Matthew' by Pier Paolo Pasolini. During the tour, you will enter a real cave house, discover an ancient rock church and enjoy a breathtaking view over the Murgia plateau. At the end of the tour, you will have 1 hour of free time to have lunch on your own or to stroll around the small craft shops. It is possibile to include lunch in a typical cave restaurant: extra 25€ p.p.. • Round-trip from Bari (Hotel pick-up) • Professional driver • Private tour guide (English) • Cave house tickets • All fees and taxes
