What You'll Do
  • Hop onto a bicycle for a unique tour of the historic and fascinating city of Matera
  • Learn about the city's modern districts and the stories behind their creation, and gaze at historic medieval buildings
Overview
Take a guided cycling tour of the modern districts of Matera, and learn about how people were evacuated from Sassi in the 1950s and 60s. See the city's new town and gaze at the contrast between modern architecture and historic monuments.
What to Expect
Take a guided cycling tour through the historic as well as modern streets of Matera. Departing from the Sassi, we will cycle through the Baroque town and pass into some of the new Matera districts, where the Sassi inhabitants moved throughout the fifties.

The modern districts tell a fascinating story from a social and anthropological point of view, as well as for people interested in architecture; let our guide tell you all about the area’s interesting history.

Matera’s current modern district is inhabited by many of the original families that were moved from the huge cave dwellings to the contemporary social houses.

The most important Italian architects in the fifties often challenged one another with the design of these houses. Among the most important names are Ludovico Quaroni, who designed La Martella, Carlo Aymonino, and Luigi Piccinato who designed the rural village of Venusio and the most populous district of Serra Venerdì.

Experience a different side of Matera on your hybrid bike, and learn about the daily life and experiences of its residents.
