We were looking forward to a long weekend in Puglia. Our Italien friends have also suggested a day in Matera. The city is unbelievable. And this hotel is probably one of the best places we have experienced. Families lived in these caves since 13th century,...More

Just make sure to bring something warm with you...and enjoy this wonderful leap in the past
