Matera is a fascinating city at first glance, it immediately projects you into another world, but having had the opportunity to discover the most significant places, details and history of a people was more compelling and was only possible thanks to a guide expert, capable of knowing how to move with dexterity in the chaos of these days. Thanks Angela !!!

This was a great 2-hour tour of Matera. It provided a good overview of the highlights and history of the town, with stops at a cave house museum and several of the best scenic overlooks.
