Full description
Venture to the ancient Sassi of Matera and visit two rock churches on a two-hour guided walking tour.  Meet your guide and driver in the central square of Matera and head out to the Park of the Murgia Materana. As your guide explains the history of this timeless place, walk through the enchanting natural landscape and admire the ravines, vegetation, and once-inhabited cave dwellings.  Explore 2 of the Sassi area’s 155 rock churches: the crypt of San Falcione, with a beautiful fresco representing "the presentation of Jesus in the temple," and Our Lady of the Three Doors, with frescoes from the 12th and 17th centuries.  At sunset, experience a panorama of the city of Matera — an unforgettable experience. Your guide will then drive you back to the center of Matera.
