It is incredible how a unique place in the world as Matera is not very known. Walking along the “sassi”or still better to sleep in one of the different hotels it’s a really amazing experience. Not by chance Pasolini directed the movie “The Gospel according to St. Mathew”. In its unicity stands out a much more unique and incredible structure: the Sextantio Grotte della Civita, defined by Vanity Fair as one of the most romantic hotels of Italy. It’s really hard to describe it, it has only to be lived; you sleep in a cavern. Very expensive but often you can find offers on their site or on Groupon or Groupalia.

Very good the Trattoria del Caveoso.

A very suitable period to visit Matera is after summer, in concurrence with an annual event, the Matera Balloon Festival.
