Tour of Matera, the ‘Rock City’, World Heritage Site

The perfect way to visit Matera’s sassi (rock dwellings) and rupestrian churches without hassle. Our service includes transfer in one of our modern vehicles from Alberobello (or from another city, if requested, with a small supplement) to Matera, where a guide will accompany you on your discovery of this extraordinary millenary city.

The visit itself is on foot, giving you every opportunity to discover at close quarters the city of rock dwellings, to see inside the spectacular rupestrian churches and the ‘Grotto House’ (one of the oldest habitations carved out of the rock), and finally taste some of the typical local specialities.

Before returning, there will be time for you to wander around the city on your own for a while.
