A cultural gem hidden in plain sight, Matera evokes wonder and surprise with its sweeping cinematic views and mind-bending architecture that dates back to prehistoric times.
DO visit Casa Noha as one of your first stops in Matera to gain a better understanding of the history of the sassi before setting out to explore the city’s interconnected stone stairways, alleyways, tunnels and terraces.
EAT and drink with a view at restaurants like Il Terrazzino, which offers panoramic views from its patio, and Osteria al Casale, which provides a front row seat to the evening passeggiata and adjacent Murgia Materana Park.
DISCOVER Matera from a different vantage point by hiking to the Belvedere Murgia Timone, a short but steep climb to an incredible viewpoint across the Gravina gorge.
