Visit the cave houses of Matera

Matera’s Sassi are one of the region’s best-known sights. These neighbourhoods of pre-historic cave dwellings are said to be the oldest habitations in Italy, and today have formed small communities with cafes, houses and even a few hotels. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, this village-like sprawl remains one of the country’s most unique and interesting sights.
