Full description

Discover a unique rock habitat with the 2-hour trekking tour to the Sassi di Matera. You will explore this marvellous Unesco World Heritage Site on foot, walking through alleys, churches and caves and immersing yourself in the history and culture of the place.

The Sassi of Matera are full of charm, life and tradition, and anyone passing through for the first time will be enchanted. You can visit the cave churches and caves dating back to the Palaeolithic period, a plunge into the past guided by a local expert.

At sunset you can appreciate the magic of the place even more and take unforgettable photos. We are waiting for you!

What we will do

The meeting with the guide is in Matera at the time selected during the booking process. Once the group is formed, we will get right into the heart of the walk.

We will explore the Sassi of Matera, delving into the history and tradition of the place. We will walk past churches and winding alleys until we reach the Civita, the highest point of the town, where we will stand in front of the Cathedral.

We will then proceed through scenic alleys until we reach the Rupestrian Church of Sant'Antonio. We will then visit a typical Casa Grotta, a typically furnished ancient dwelling. We will stroll through the streets to the meeting point of the Sasso Barisano and the Sasso Caveoso, which divide the north and south.

Finally, we will head to Piazzetta Pascoli to enjoy a wonderful view of the Sassi at sunset. The excursion will take about 2 hours.

Who it is aimed at

Suitable for everyone over the age of 10. To go down to the Cave House, it is important not to have walking problems.
