Know More about this tour

After you have met your professional English-speaking driver at the Bari port you can relax on a 90-minute journey to the fabulous Matera. You will get the chance to walk through streets of the so-called "underground city," which is made of caves, with houses carved into the rock, rock churches with frescoes and ancients buildings. Matera is also highly appreciated as a place to shoot movies, such as 'King David' with Richard Gere, 'The Passion of the Christ' directed by Mel Gibson and many others.

Starting from the area called the Piano (flat), the last level of urban development on top of Sassi, you will proceed along paths, alleys and stairs, which will enable you to descend into past. The route is studded with numerous stops, such as entrances to rock churches, cave houses, water collection systems, and cellars dug in caves. Your guide will help you understand many aspects that determined the lifestyle in Sassi.
