Important city of the Murgia area, Gravina can boast an ancient history, which dates back to the Paleolithic, and a very rare beauty, with its buildings set in stone. It is called Gravina “in Puglia”, as there are several cities and places in the world that are called Gravina (one is in Sicily, but even in Alaska we have the Gravina Islands), and takes its name from the crack in the earth’s crust similar to a canyon, called precisely “gravina”. Gravina in Puglia was a city much loved by Frederick II and is often compared for beauty to the more famous Matera, whose style is reminded in part to visitors.
Organization of the tour
You will meet with the guide at the agreed meeting point at the agreed time, and the tour will start. If you (or your group) are the only participants, you can propose the guide a particular point and time. All PlacenPeople organizers who will accompany you on cultural tours are licensed professional tour guides.
Alternatively, if you choose a two-stage day tour (check tours of 2 locations) our organizers are available to offer – often free of charge – a ride by car (in the case of a few people) or to organize transport by bus or minibus (in case of groups).
