If you visit Matera try to visit the underground water cistern; it is not a must but it is impressive when you consider that it was completely dug out and plastered by hand.

The tour was very interesting! The guide very patient. The place well maintained after all these years! There was a time when people knew how to build things to last!

We went to visit. It does look interesting, but note that it is currently closed (from 1 Oct) for installation of lighting. Give the tourist office a bell before you make the trip.

There have been some grumbles about this tour. Not from us. To get the chance to explore a vast, former water cistern which has only been open to tourists since 2011, tondiscover the sheer scale of the “city under the city” was rather amazing. And the story of how they drained it, stopped all the springs and found all the buckets that the people of Matera had lost all down the centuries was fascinating. The guide told the story well, I thought his English was clear, and he left loads of time for questions at the end. Yes agreed, it is not disabled-accessible but a fascinating and worthwhile tour. Picture looking up shows the architecturally sensitive way the stairs have been put in.
