Matera

Cities and Towns in Basilicata

Matera is one of the world's oldest inhabited cities in the world.  It is by far one of the most impressive cities in the region of Basilicata which is located in Italy's deep south.   The city has been considered a World Heritage Site by UNESCO since 1993.

This ancient city is so impressive because of its unique geography, geology, architecture and the amazing events which happened here.  Featured in the film the "Passion of Christ", you can catch a glimpse of what awaits you here, but the magnitude of it - the incredible scope of what humans did here, simply has to be seen in person.

We can try to explain it in words, but it is just simply put one of those places you just simply must see with your own eyes. 

Many visitors to Italy never venture so far south as Basilicata or the deep south in general, but those that do come are rewarded with some of Italy's finest foods, the most hospitable people, and the magic of one of the the world's most ancient cities and cultures. 

We have many services, small group guided tours, private tours, vacation pacakges in Italy's deep south and WONDERFUL dining recommendations in town and around in the surrounding farms.

Client Testimonials

Dear Guiseppe and Jesse,
We just returned from our most wonderful vacation to Italy and wanted to first thank you for putting together such a wonderful trip, and second to provide some feedback for the future.

Rental Car- easy to find at Florence airport and the personnel at Avis/Budget very nice and helpful. We didn't get the Mercedes A class as listed on the voucher(probably just as well) but a nice Renault which worked just fine. The lady who checked us in told us we should expect a refund since we were turning the car in three days earlier than the rental agreement. I am assuming that comes to you guys and is just part of your service.

Hotels
1. Hotel Sovestro in San Gimignano was wonderful. The staff were very friendly and helpful and made the first portion of our journey very stress free. They made us feel like we were part of their family. I would recommend it to anyone and would specifically ask for it if we were to make a return visit.

2. Hotel La Baia in Monterosso was nice and it's location was very good especially for us older folks humping luggage from/to the train station.

3. Hotel Lucchesi in Florence- what can I say expect FANTASTIC. The rooftop view at sunset is well worth it. Again very friendly and helpful staff. Would recommend it to everyone.

Wine Tour
Money well spent. We had a great time overall. The driver Mario was OUTSTANDING. He had lots of local knowledge as well as about winemaking. USE HIM AGAIN!!!

1. Altesino- fantastic and they were not cheap on their pouring. Great experience.
2. Cal D'orcia - just ok. The tour guide was bit lame, and when my wife by chance met the owner, he was a bit rude. The lunch was nothing to brag about and definitely not something we would do again. We would not recommend, but maybe it was just a bad day.
3. Azienda Agricola Patrizia Cencion Sloaria- Again a great tour by one of the owner's daughters. We felt like we were the only thing on their mind although there were other customers there. A great way to complete the day.

Trains - We had to trash the tickets you guys got us for the trip Monterosso to Florence because the 2 - 10 minute train change times in La Spezia and Pisa were simply not doable. We ended up purchasing new tickets in Monterosso that allowed us to only make one change(In Pisa) with a much more realistic interval and got us into Florence at the same time as the one you booked.

Again we had a fantastic time and are very appreciative of everything you booked for us. We wish you continued success and if our travels should bring us back to Italy, we know who to call.
