Matera.....a medieval city
Splendid Matera.....there is no place like it on earth. Ancient cave dwellings from the Paleolithic era and "more modern" cave dwellings that were used up until the late 1950's!! And in the middle of all the caves.....a medieval city that is full of life today! Matera has been named the European Culture Capital for 2019. Get there before it is discovered by the masses! You can stay in a 5-star cave hotel.......or a luxury 17th Century Palazzo. Plus the food and wine of Basilicata is amazing. Nothing will disappoint the most discerning of travelers!
