An unforgettable experience in the unique atmosphere of the Sassi.


We will visit a beautiful UNESCO place like the Sassi of Matera: SASSI represent an extraordinary urban ecosystem capable of perpetuating the farthest prehistoric past ways of living in caves up to modernity.

Known as "la Città Sotterranea" (the Subterranean City), Matera is well known for being one of the oldest inhabited cities in the world. On October 17, 2014, Matera was declared Italian host of European Capital of Culture for 2019.

A Recent Review of this tour

Giorgio is superb. He is informative, fun and a great conversationalist. We enjoyed every second of our tour and the 3 hours passed too quickly. Giogio covers many locations in Puglia and Basilicata, so you can arrange more than one tour with him when you are in these areas. I recommend him 100%.
