Private Tours in Puglia & Basilicata

In 2014, Matera, one of the two main towns of Basilicata was chosen as European cultural capital for 2019 putting it into the limelight. Regardless this ephemeral period of fame and fortune, the town itself is really an impressive place. The historical center is spectacular and despite local inhabitants wrongly (and cunningly) boast of being the third oldest city of the world, it is quite unique and worthy to be visited. Matera is not the only gem of South-East Italy: the Trulli of Alberobello and the baroque city of Lecce along with Matera make up an incredible trio of tourist sites and it doesn't stop there. The two neighbouring regions of Puglia and Basilicata have plenty of places worthy to be visited... it is up to you to come and discover them
