Matera and Alberobello Private Day Tour from Rome

Matera and Alberobello Private Day Tour from Rome

star-5

Matera it's one of the oldest towns in the world, having been continuously inhabited since the Neolithic age. That's roughly 7,000 years !! In the 1950s Matera was a town forgotten by the Italian government. Eventually it was coerced into doing something about the people who lived here in appaling conditions, and built a new town nearby before moving the whole town out of their prehistoric cave dwellings. Alberobello, in the region of Puglia in Southern Italy, is a strange and picturesque destination. The small town has been included in the UNESCO world heritage site. Looking like igloos, constructed out of pure stone, the beehive-shape structures, have origins that dates back to the 15th century and maybe older. The trulli, found nowhere else in the world, are built of local limestone.

A holiday that enables you to savour the flavours, scents and sites of this wonderful area of Italy at it's best. I like giving my guests the best possible feel for Puglia where they can be in touch with the real Apulian life, meeting locals, admiring hidden corners and eating in selected restaurants where it's difficult to find many tourists with a guidebook in their hands. One doesn't feel like a tourist who is tramping around a pre-set journey. I'll take care of everything, including your accommodation, airport collection and I'll be more than pleased to lead you through a fantastic itinerary of discovery of the beautiful places, landscapes and extraordinary gourmet food of Puglia. Small group tour not larger than 6 people.
