Matera, Basilicata’s jewel, may be the third-longest continuously inhabited human settlement in the world. Natural caves in the tufa limestone, exposed as the Gravina cut its gorge, attracted the first inhabitants perhaps 7000 years ago. Today, looking across the gorge to Matera’s huddled sassi (cave dwellings) it seems you’ve been transported back to the ancient Holy Land. You will roam though the labyrinth of this UNESCO World Heritage site and discover the magic of this spectacular place – the wines, the history, the surrounding hills of Masseria and the wines of the Vulture region! Bellissimo!
