Subterranean City

Famous for its resemblance to the ancient settlements of Jerusalem and Cappadocia, Matera remains one of the oldest inhabited cities in the world.
Venture out of the city with trips to Castelmezzano (Volo dell'Angelo & Gradinata Normanna) and Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Metaponto (in Metaponto). There's much more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Sassi di Matera, examine the collection at Casa Grotta di Vico Solitario, delve into the distant past at Materasum Ipogeo, and stroll around Parco della Murgia Materana.
