Wandering through the alleyways, you will come across the beautiful clock tower in the main square, several stunning churches and the remains of the Norman tower, Porta Grande that once marked the entrance to the town.

Wine and Cuisine Puglia is a paradise for lovers of food and wine. The sunny climate creates perfect conditions for the cultivation of magnificent olives, legendary grapes and some of the most flavorsome vegetables you will ever taste. The region has a rich agricultural tradition and as a result of the recipes use simple, locally grown ingredients to fabulous ends. Not to be missed is the mouth-watering Burrata cheese, which is a soft cheese, and has to be eaten of the day of purchase. 

Matera is a city and a province in the region of Basilicata. The town lies in a small canyon carved out by the Gravina (small stream and ravine). Coordinates: 40° 40'N 16°36'E. The place to visit is the historical centre called 'Sassi' considered a World Heritage Site by UNESCO since 1993, along with the Park of the Rupestrian Churches.

Its oldest street was builet during the 17th Dentury so you’ll be able to stroll past the ornately frescoed Palazzo Longo and enjoy the fascinating little shops and bustling restaurants. Anciient churches, picture postcard piazzas and clock towers add to the charm. The caves are open all year round and offer an interesting day out for all ages, especially if the weather is less than perfect.

Entrance is with a tour guide only and visits last around 2 hours.
