Matera, 2019 European Capital of Culture and Unesco Heritage Site, is one of the oldest city in the world. Its territory preserves old settlements dating back to the Paleolithic Age. Matera is, the so-called, city of the “Sassi” (Stones); the original town developed from natural caves dug into the rock, then shaped into even more complex structures such as the two big natural amphitheaters, Sasso Caveoso and Sasso Barisano. Visit a cave-house entirely and typically furnished to understand the customs and traditions of the inhabitants of the ancient Sassi districts, before their abandonment. Also, visit to a Cave Church, dating back to the 8th Century, the most important in the history of Matera. At the end of the walk, visit to a bakery and tasting of Matera bread, which has become an IGP product thanks to its historical and organoleptic qualities.

Alberobello, in the heart of the “Murgia dei Trulli”, is a World Heritage Site with its 1500 trulloes.
Visit to the Rione Monti, the oldest part the town, together with the Aia Piccola district. Visit to the amazing Church of Sant’Antonio, the only trullo-shaped church in the world.

*Appetizer at a location in Monopoli is optional.
The experience ends with the tasting of unique and unequivocal products of Puglia, surrounded by an incredible scenery that only a sea view location can offer. The appetizer consists of crunchy taralli and slices of bread seasoned with tomato and olive oil, appetizing local olives, crudités and salty croissants stuffed with local salami along with an indispensable glass of local wine.
