Full description

Embark on a day out in Sassi and explore the ancient neighbourhoods with a live guide. See a series of grottoes carved out of limestone and marvel at the Sasso Barisano and the Sasso Caveoso.

Your tour will begin at the meeting point in Via Alessandro Volta. From here, your expert guide will lead you to the Church of San Francesco, situated in the historic centre of the city. Next, you’ll continue along a panoramic road comprised of narrow streets and winding alleys. After arriving at the Rupestre Church of Sant'Antonio Abate, you’ll find a pleasant surprise waiting inside: a classic example of the traditional culture of this remarkable city.

Afterwards, you’ll move on to visit a typical Matera cave-house before continuing along Via Madonna delle Virtù and Porta Pistoia "Pert P’stèl" to conclude your cultural adventure.

Very good , very impassioned guide. Also got helped to linkup with your despite being 15 mins late. Why - couldn’t find the tourist information centre that was the tourist company office in fact. The primary issue was I couldn’t get a regular working mobile signal in Matera so google maps didn’t work at right time

To visit Matera it is a must to take a guided tour to fully understand the particularity of the place. Our tour was very interesting and enjoyable especially thanks to our guide Giuseppe who was very good and made me fall in love with this beautiful city! I recommend the evening tour to admire Matera at dusk
