What a unique and amazing site to see. I had seen some videos of the Sassi on You Tube, but nothing compares to seeing the enormity of the site in person.

Visited the Sassi region as part of a tour and it was stunning. You can visit the house and chapel hewn into the rock. You can still see the frescoes in the church. This was a definite highlight of the tour

Read the history, take a guided tour, but don't miss the Sassi. It is one of the most fascinating experiences in all our travels. If summer, wear a hat and take water!

Wonderfull city, with amazing views and houses and hotels. Also the churches are amazing! We booked a tour, however this one went from souvenir shop to souvenir shop and did not include any of the churches. So be careful!
