Matera, Italy

I came across some pictures from our trip to Matera last summer – this town and the region of Basilicata really should be on every travel must-see list!

“Approach Matera from virtually any direction and your first glimpse of its famous sassi is sure to stay in your memory forever. Haunting and beautiful, the sassi sprawl below the rim of a yawning ravine like a giant nativity scene. The old town is simply unique and warrants at least a day of exploration and aimless wandering. Although many buildings are crumbling and abandoned, others have been restored and transformed into cosy abodes, restaurants and swish cave-hotels. On the cliff top, the new town is a lively place, with its elegant churches, palazzi; especially the pedestrianized Piazza Vittorio Veneto.”
