Amazing short hike. Great views...Go right !
Nov 2021 • Couples
Did the crossing twice from the sassi. Access it at parking lot and there us à set of stars leaving down to canyon. Hiking shoes are nice to have as uneven rocks and lots of broken glass..total time you'll need is about 2hrs to complete the 4km return. It's just down and switchback up after crossing suspension bridge.

Careful near top as you should go to right to see majorité of cave à chapel. We went left first time and fewer there but quicker to reach top lookouts. This is why we did twice over two days. Plus it nice exercise Anyway. Change from getting loss in saisi.

Views are amazing of Matera sassi. Go explore tons of caves and pack à lunch. Dont litter like others...make sure you take some pic looking out from cave of sassi. It's epic and perfect instagram shots

There were very few tourist esp foreign. Italian tourist and some school kids. Basically we had caves to ourselve. Due to low season and covid.

Layer as you get hot and cool

Happy exploring

Must to do hike, save time for it
Oct 2021
When visiting Matera make sure you save time for this beautiful easy trek to see the city from the different perspective and take nice pics. It is easy to navigate around. The entrance to the trail-head is not far away from San Pietro Caveaso. To complete the trek in relax way to see the plateau and surroundings, take picture is 60-90 minutes. On the way up and down via the rover Gravina you will see some caves, small churches and viewing platforms for stunning views.

Nice hiking
Sep 2020
Quite a large area to hike if you have the will and the time. You can explore some caves that are remaining close to the hilltops.

Climbing around the Paleolithic caverns it's worth the trip and it's free! Great view of Matera divided by the Gravina.

Fantastic place
Sep 2019 • Couples
Loved the park. Only 10 minutes easy drive from the city and nice to be out in the open for a lovely walk. Amazing views. Great sound of cowbells and encountered the most beautiful horse. Incredible caves. Def worth a visit if only to take in the view back over Matera. Easy parking and helpful staff at the visitor centre.

Stunning views
Aug 2019
We took a bus from Matera Central (20 mins) to arrive at dusk to enjoy spectacular views of both the ravines & of course fabulous views across to the city. There are no facilities here so it is advisable to provide & bring food & drink with you should you feel the need.
Buses to & from Murgia are extremely regular and can become very crowded, allow yourself time to possibly miss one bus!

Revealing Archaelogical Park
Aug 2019
Had the experience of visiting with the park with the panoramic bus Matera City Tour and must way is a fantastic way of discovering this archeologic site. There was the chance of visiting one of three rupestrian churches. It offers the possibility of admire the origins of the city for the caves carved in rock and one of the most spectacular rocky landscapes. Its a must see when visiting the Basilicata region.

Spectacular!
Jun 2019
We accidentally missed our turn on the paved road and went down a gravel road for miles. Finally turned around and followed the road up right by the visitor center. The view was spectacular of the old city was spectacular. There were many trails to explore. We only spent about an hour there but could have spent hours exploring all the trails. Recommended to wear sneakers. A must!

Spectacular
May 2019 • Couples
So beautiful - the wild flowers (in May), the stone churches, the scenery and view back to Matera. What an extraordinary walk. We went with a guide (Alessio from Matera Experience) and he did a wonderful job of explaining the history and showing us the wild flowers and churches. You do want to go with a guide as you can access the rock churches without them.

Well worth the trip
May 2019 • Couples
We took the “special bus” which was very cheap at only €1.50 each way and ran frequently but unfortunately only on Saturday and Sunday. However, it was well worth the wait for Saturday, spectacular views and good paths to spend a few hours exploring the caves and cave churches. We did not hire a guide and thoroughly enjoyed it. Would have liked to spend more time exploring on other days but the bus limited the opportunity. Hopefully the foot bridge will eventually re-open!
