Matera and Murgia tour

Matera - Murgia

*from € 87 per person

6 h


Visit Matera and Murgia in 1 day

On this Matera and Murgia tour you will visit two special places that will take you on a journey back in time to the Frederick Middle Ages – the cities of the Murgia – and then even earlier, to the Stone Age, among the caves and rocks of Matera.

In the Murgia we will be able to see a choice between two locations, which our guide will recommend based on your tastes and preferences: Altamura, with its megalithic walls, or Gravina, set in its rocky landscape.

Then we will go to the “City of Stones”, Matera, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, European Capital of Culture in 2019; Matera is a singular experience that attracts travelers from all over the world, with its rock settlements ranging from the Paleolithic to the present day, in a continuum of houses carved into the stone, and represents a page of history on the construction of human dwellings.

Organization of the tour

The organizers of this tour like to provide their car for free as a courtesy. They will reach you where you are (the meeting point should be within 1 hour by car from the destination, otherwise a little extra will be asked before confirmation) and you will go together to the first location, where you will spend the morning. Lunch is not included and you can decide together if you prefer to stay in the first or second location (the organizers always give suggestions, but the choice is yours).

After lunch you will reach the second location, where you will spend the afternoon. The organizer will be there for you and will be able to manage the times according to your needs: if you want you will also have ample free time. At the end of the tour, you will return to the meeting point by car. In case you need it, and the itinerary doesn’t change too much, you can also ask the organizer to be dropped off in a different place from where you left in the morning.

*Costs (and inclusions)

The total cost of the tour consists of a per person fee, plus a one-time group charge, which depends on the chosen Formula. The cost per person is €110 for 2 people, €96 for 3 people, and €87 for larger groups. The Formula is:

  • TOUR FLEXI: no additional cost, and you leave the PlacenPeople organizer free to choose the date, based on 3 dates selected by you. We will indicate the date on which the tour will depart within 2 days from the first available date.
  • TOUR OPEN: like the tour flexi, the tour open is also a group tour, so other people can join. The difference is that the tour open allows you to choose the date for the tour; an additional amount of €25 is added to the total.
  • PRIVATE TOUR: the tour flexi is a group tour, so other people can join. If you wish to have a private tour, an additional amount of €65 is added to the total, and no external bookings will be accepted.


  • SINGLE LOCATION: you can also choose to remove a location, so the tour will only take half a day (discounts are available depending on the location chosen).
  • CHILDREN: PlacenPeople organizers apply a total discount for children up to 3 years old, while payment is half the fee up to 10 years inclusive. From 11 years onwards, they are considered adults. In case a free car ride is required for small children, an extra charge for the rental of a child seat may be requested if necessary. Children do not count towards the minimum number required to form a tour.
  • AVAILABLE LANGUAGES: the standard tour is available in English and Italian; other languages are available at a small extra charge.

If an organizer is to provide a free car ride, this is not included in the price, but is free and separate from the service offered; therefore, even if you prefer to use your own car, the cost does not change. The organizer’s activity is included in the cost, while everything else is excluded (snacks, lunch, souvenirs, etc.) and entrance tickets to monuments or churches are excluded (although these are optional). The cost of any extras will be agreed upon before finalizing the booking. Entrance to monument
