What to Expect
Enjoy a full-day tour to see some of the most beautiful sights in the southern Italian regions of Puglia and Basilicata on a full-day tour from Bari.

Start with a morning tour of Bari, the second most important cruise port in Italy after Venice. Rich in history, Bari pre-dates the Romans, but it was during the Middle Ages that it truly flourished, partly as one of the main slave ports of the Mediterranean.

As your explore, you will see old women making handmade orecchiette pasta, and an array of colorful sights, such as the Petruzzelli Theatre, one of the grandest opera houses in Italy. Visit the Basilica of Saint Nicholas, one of the 4 Palatine churches of Apulia, and home to the relics of Saint Nicholas.

Before lunch, drive to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Matera, an historic town of golden stones and ancient houses. Allegedly founded by the Romans in the 3rd century BC, among the city’s highlights are the Sassi di Matera (Stones of Matera) - houses dug into the calcareous rock of the canyon.

Go to the Romanesque Matera Cathedral atop the highest point of the city, and dominated by a rose window of 16 rays. Admire the neighboring Campanile (Bell Tower), and get breathtaking views of some of the Sassi. Sample some of Matera’s local cuisine, before your transfer back to Bari at about 15:00.
