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.

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
