Pleasant tour made even lighter and more fun by Romina's expertise who made us enter the magical atmosphere of Matera, its history and its uniqueness in a simple and at the same time full of knowledge way. Thanks again to Romina and all the Agency. We highly recommend a tour with Romina. Franco Chirco - Formia(Lt)

Annalisa was a fabulous tour guide. Having a tour guide whose own grandparents experienced the Sassi was really eye opening. She was extremely engaging and shared with us so much history about Matera. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who is looking to learn more about this magical city.

A very interesting tour of the Sassi of Matera. The tour was offered in German. We learned interesting details, including a local tip for dinner at Sasso. Thanks very much!
