Covid measures:
Each participant will have a receiving radio guide (with disposable earphone) that will allow them to hear the guide well, while maintaining the safety distance from it

The modern city of Matera develops on a plateau while the two Sassi districts are vertically built inside a canyon, on the side of a gorge. On the other side there is the Murgia park with its caves, where you can take panoramic walks.

The urban area of the Sassi has undergone so many transformation and stratification processes that its architecture is in fact fascinating. Along the tour there are many stops for historical, architectural and social study, observing those aspects that have determined, over the centuries, the changing socio-economic conditions of the territory with the progressive, slow and inexorable degradation and abandonment of the Sassi, until to be able to appreciate the limelight and the enhancement that the Sassi are experiencing today

Review of: Walking Tour
Highly recommend! Must do to truly understand and appreciate Matera. Antonio was a passionate and interesting guide who shared engaging information on Matera. He is Matera born and bred and I appreciated hearing about his life as the old area was rebuilt and how his grandmother experienced the changes in her own life. He was clearly passionate and positive about Matera and we all enjoyed the tour immensely!

Review of: Walking Tour
We really enjoyed visiting Matera with Antonio! He is a very professional guide: he knows how to make the visit both very interesting and fun. I usually find guided tours a bit boring, but with Antonio the time passed quickly and pleasantly (even though the day was incredibly hot, with 40 degrees in the shade ...!) because he is very good at engaging customers. Last but not least, his English is excellent!

Review of: Walking Tour
One of the best days of our cruise. Antonio is an exceptional guide. He is a life long resident of Matera and could not only tell us about the fascinating history and construction of the city, but also his personal and family experiences made it all the more real. He was very accommodating to the needs of four seniors on a very hot sunny day with lots of steps to negotiate. He took inside two extraordinary churches and spoke knowledgeably and interestingly about the history and art. He also arranged for a driver to/from our cruise ship in Bari - the driver was prompt and flexible to our needs. An exceptional day with a uniquely qualified guide. Strongly recommended

Review of: Walking Tour
Use no one else! This is one of the most amazing places to visit in all of Italy and have a guide is essential. This company and especially Vito are excellent....can't say enought good things about them. Vito was wonderful, clearly loved his city, loved sharing his knowledge with us and made our time and trip there something we will never forget.
