Famous for its resemblance to the ancient settlements of Jerusalem and Cappadocia, Matera remains one of the oldest inhabited cities in the world.
You'll explore and learn at Masseria Brancati and Laboratorio della Cola Cola - La Casa della Cola Cola. Get a sense of the local culture at Cattedrale di Matera and Castello Svevo di Barletta. Venture out of the city with trips to Gravina in Puglia (Gravina Sotterranea & Gravina in Puglia - Cattedrale), Pinacoteca Giuseppe De Nittis (in Barletta) and Cattedrale di Bitonto (in Bitonto). The adventure continues: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilica Cattedrale Maria Santissima della Madia, appreciate the extensive heritage of Centro Storico, make a trip to Cattedrale, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Cattedrale di Ruvo di Puglia.

To find maps, photos, other places to visit, and tourist information, go to the Matera route planner.

If you are flying in from Switzerland, the closest major airports are Bari Karol Wojtyła Airport, Brindisi – Salento Airport and Naples International Airport. In September, plan for daily highs up to 29°C, and evening lows to 17°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 8th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
