What people are saying about Church of Saint Francis of Assisi, Matera,

La nostra guida Antonia ci ha portato in un fantastico tour di Matera, tra le vie dei sassi (caveoso e barisano), accompagnato da un racconto di storia della città che ci ha incantati, mai annoiati, e ci ha portato indietro nel tempo. Non si può trarre tutta la bellezza di questa città senza conoscerne il passato difficile. Contentissima della nostra scelta, lo rifarei altre mille volte!

Giusy, la guida, è semplicemente spaziale! Ti trasmette la passione per la storia e narra della città non solo a livello storico/architettonico ma proprio contestualizzandola e raccontando aneddoti collegati alla letteratura e personaggi storici passati da qui. Tour vivamente consigliato! Doveva durare 2 ore e invece ne è durate 3!

Our guide, Francesco, was really fantastic , friendly and exceptionally experienced. He took us to the Sassi quarters giving loads of details about history and curiosity as well as tips to enjoy further exploring the place. I will be back for sure. Finally a visit to his museum . I highly recommend this guide.

Our guide, Antonia, illustrated Matera to us as we would never have been able to see without her. Explanations of the city that once was and of the stories of everyday lives took us back in time, making us immerse in the rural atmosphere of that time. Highly recommended route with a guide like Antonia.

La signora Antonia è Stata a dir Poco disponibile e paziente come guida. Bella la visione del cortonetraggio Nella gotta
