Trip Overview

Hiking in the Gorges of Matera & Private Lunch in the Cave Church
This morning we will transport you to Matera for an in-depth visit of this unique and ancient city perched high on a beautiful hillside and only recently seen by foreign eyes. This famed UNESCO World Heritage Site is just across the border from Puglia, in the Basilicata Region.
Our guide will lead you on a lovely trek through the gorges near the city. This wild and stunning landscape around Matera is distinctly different from the terrain in Puglia and our guide will bring the area to life as you explore ravines and old cave dwellings. After the hike, enjoy a private lunch prepared exclusively for you and served in a gorgeous cave church.
