In the morning, enjoy a four-hour tour of this ancient city, with its winding medieval streets, churches, and a blend of medieval and 19th century architecture.

Your local guide will take on a walking tour during which you have a first-hand experience of this vibrant town with some important examples of various architectural styles such as St Nicholas Basilica and the Norman Castle. Part of today's tour is the visit to Signora Nunzia's home. This lovely lady will take pride in offering you a home cooked lunch based on local specialties such as orecchiette and braciola.

Orecchiette are a typical variety of homemade pasta and braciole are veal rolls seasoned with pine nuts, sultanas, parsley and parmesan cheese, cooked slowly in a rich tomato sauce, all topped by a glass of local wine. Enjoy!

After breakfast, meet your driver in the hotel lobby for an exciting Matera and Alberobello trip, delving into the unique history of Puglia. The incredibly stunning town of Matera harbors an ancient settlement, carved directly into the stone, inspiring Mel Gibson to use it as a set for the Passion of Christ film. After an enlightening tour through these historical homes, make your way to Alberobello, to the charming trulli homes. Over 1000 years old, these unique homes with conical roofs were built with no mortar, allowing settlers to dismantle their homes when in a hurry. Learn more about these constructions with your guide, enjoy the handicrafts, souvenirs and the charming setting. Return to your hotel and rest or set out for a welcoming restaurant to enjoy an exquisite local dinner.
