A must if you are interested in the history and so well put together by FAI an organization promoting the city of culture. The movie moved me to tears

The site and sight not to miss while travelling near or in Puglia. The Sassi are dwellings used until the 60's by local inhabitant, and the palce still retain a lot of its old atmosphere. Go there before it will change totally!

A "must see" place. Words cannot do justice to it. Its like stepping back in history and feel that you are pat of the way it was back then.

Had not even heard of the area before embarking on the trip. Make sure you have a guide (or travel guide) that will give you the background to the area as well as its recent history. Be prepared for some climbing up and down, stairs are not all that even but definitely worth a visit.

Very old and historical, abundance of restaurants at reasonable prices, friendly local population, a must if in southern Italy.
