Matera Named Top World Destination–as Italy bike tour clients already know

Fodors has named Matera to its list of top 21 places to visit in 2012. This comes as no surprise to our clients who have visited the city on their Italy bicycle tours, like the Basilicata and Apulia Sassi and Trulli tour.

“In-the-know Italy lovers are buzzing about this under-the-radar patch of country, located in the arch of Italy’s boot. Basilicata’s ancient city of Matera (where Passion of the Christ was filmed) feels lost in time; it’s home to UNESCO World Heritage site Sassi, comprising hundreds of cave dwellings dating back to the eighth century, some of which have been converted into Matera’s most-coveted rooms. Even the local cuisine takes its queues from age-old recipes.”
