The panoramic view of the Sassi at night, expertly illuminated by a thousand lights, with magical and evocative glimpses will open to your eyes during the night walk we offer you. The ancient districts of Matera, Unesco Heritage since 1993, now recovered with homes, restaurants and tourist activities, are a fascinating discovery, an entire city carved out of limestone.
The guided tour starts from the main square where you can have a first overview of the Sasso Barisano district and then crosses the entire medieval area dominated by the Romanesque Cathedral and a magical atmosphere.
Arriving in the Sasso Caveoso district there is a succession of small charming streets and stairways that lead to the heart of the ancient city: the Gravina di Matera, a deep fracture of the rock, populated by numerous animal species, which at night takes on an even more intriguing aspect.
The guided tour of Matera allows you to discover the thousand hidden corners and the skilful lighting that enhances the most suggestive views. In summer, the many pubs and bars with outdoor tables bring together young people who enliven the ancient neighborhoods with a pleasant night chat.
After the visit it will be possible to stop in one of the many restaurants located in original places where you can taste the specialties of the local cuisine, from a simple cold waffle made with typical Matera bread to a more elaborate roast meat or fresh pasta dish seasoned in the most varied ways.
