Guided Tours of Matera

GUIDED TOURS IN PUGLIA

Matera walking tour

Pure charm… this is what Matera, with its colours, light and views, offers visitors. Largely carved out of and built with tuff stone, the town has a truly remarkable history and a deep sense of spirituality, purity and authenticity. The sassi, the ancient cave dwellings, make it unique but there is much more to catch the eye and the imagination – just ask Mel Gibson, who chose Matera as the main location of The Passion of Christ. You won’t really scratch the surface unless you go with a guide, however, and that’s where we come in: we have one of the very best, ready to unveil the secrets of this UNESCO Heritage town’s arcane secrets on a 2-hour walking tour.  

We recommend you wear comfortable clothes and shoes and a hat, and bring sunscreen and insect repellent. 



Matera walking tour with bread demonstration

One of Matera’s most closely guarded secrets is its centennial bread-making traditions. At the end of your walking tour (description of walking tour above), you can find out more by heading to one of the town’s most renowned bakeries for a breadmaking demonstration. After all of this, you’ll have worked up an appetite, so you’ll be pleased to know that the next part of the experience is a tasting of the bakery’s delicious products.

We recommend you wear comfortable clothes and shoes and a hat, and bring sunscreen and insect repellent.

Please let us know if you are vegetarian or if you have food intolerances or allergies.



Terms and conditions

Think Experiences are provided by independent local companies which are neither owned not controlled by The Thinking Traveller and for whom we act only as an agent. Whilst every effort is made to keep the description of every Think Experience up to date, the provider may cancel or amend your experience at their discretion for many reasons including where it considers that there may be a risk to your comfort, health or safety. Some excursions/activities (i.e. helicopter rides, excursions on Mount Etna, boat charter, etc.) may contain an element of risk or require a good level of physical fitness, and, if in doubt, you should contact us so we can put you in contact directly with the local provider before deciding to buy. Please also check that you are covered for the activity(ies) in question by your travel insurance policy.

In acting in the capacity of an agent on behalf of the provider, your contract will be with that provider and will be subject to their standard terms and conditions, and it will not form part of your contracted holiday arrangements with us. Any complaint (including any allegation of breach of contract or negligence) should be taken up with the excursion/activity provider directly. We will do our best to assist you, but will have no liability in relation to the performance of that contract.
