DAY 1

14 km

Ready for a journey through history? We start in Matera, a UNESCO site and European Capital of Culture 2019. We will walk through the labyrinthine streets of the Sassi district, with its panoramic balconies and characteristic dwellings carved into the rock, to the Gravina stream. Here we will cross a suspension bridge that will take us into the vast Parco della Murgia Materana: a walk through the most green nature awaits us, accompanied by the scents of the Mediterranean maquis, numerous varieties of wild flowers and tall ferula plants! But we will also discover ancient rock churches and hermit refuges, walking along hidden sheep tracks, always immersed in the incredible panorama of the city of the Sassi.

Elevation gain/loss: +40m, – 400m

The route does not have a high altitude, but some sections have steep slopes, either uphill or downhill. The path is well-marked and recently renovated, and some segments are easy gravel. Trekking shoes with ankle support are recommended.

Suitable for walkers, even those who are not particularly experienced and are used to hiking from 2 to 3 hours.

Matera is easily connected with Bari airport. A metro and several shuttles (but also trains, taxi and hire cabs) let you get to Bari central train station in a few minutes. Here you can take one of the many daily trains of the Ferrovie Appulo Lucane, (F.A.L.) to Matera. The same is the case for Bari port, situated a few steps away from the Central Station.
Matera is also 140 km far from Brindisi, where you can find both an airport and a port with several international routes, too.
If you are travelling by car, take the Bologna-Taranto highway until you get to the exit “Bari Nord”. Keep driving to the “zona industriale” (industrial area) and then to Altamura-Matera, i.e. SS96 and then SS99.
Anyway, a private transfer service with driver from all Apulian airports, stations and ports is also available on request.
