The walk takes you through the Sassi of Matera. The World Heritage Site has been voted European Capital of Culture in 2019.
The trail winds down on through the rocky city with the famous Sassi, an medieval necropolis. The visit is very interesting for adults and children, because our professional guides will accompany you and tell the interesting stories about life in the old city of Matera.
You will visit a rock church, a church completely carved into the rock from the peasant civilization. It is also possible to visit a farmer’s apartment where life seems to be standing still.
On your tour, you will learn a lot from the lives and history of the people who lived in the Sassi.
At the end of the tour, your guide will accompany you to an excellent restaurant serving typical cuisine with local food. It is located in the heart of Matera in a cave, in the real Sassi.
You can enjoy a delicious 4-course menu there, along with local wine and, at the end, an Amaro.
The restaurant in the Sassi is beautifully designed and decorated. The interior consists of large vaults with a floor-to-ceiling glass window.
In fine weather, you can sit on the terrace in the breathtaking atmosphere of the Sassi.
