UNESCO tour: Matera and Alberobello
Guided tour of the Sassi of Matera and the village of the trulli of Alberobello
Discover two incredible UNESCO World Heritage Sites
Matera, European Capital of Culture 2019 and UNESCO heritage, is one of the oldest cities in the world whose territory preserves evidence of rock settlements from the Palaeolithic to the present day. It is in fact known as the city of stones, since its original urban nucleus developed inside naturally dug caves and later modeled into increasingly complex structures, creating a panorama similar to a beehive.
With the tour it will be possible to visit a cave house typically furnished to understand the uses and customs of the inhabitants of the time, and a beautiful rock church.
At the end of the walk, you can visit a bakery and taste the typical Bread of Matera, awarded with the IGP designation.
Alberobello, in the heart of the Murgia, is a World Heritage Site together with its approximately 1500 trulli. The tour will take you to the Monti district and the Aia Piccola, the oldest in the city, where Casa Pezzolla, a complex of 15 communicating trulli currently used as a Museum of the Territory, and the Trullo Sovrano, which hosts shows and concerts, stand out. It will also be possible to visit the Church of Sant'Antonio, the only church in the world built in a trullo.
The visit includes a guide in Italian / English, the entrance ticket to the cave-house, the ticket for the visit to the rock church, tasting of Matera PGI bread and insurance. On request it is possible to take advantage of the return transfer, guide in the language and the opportunity to enjoy the experience in private.
