Tour guide

The best way to spend a day in Matera, the European Capital of Culture 2019. Welcome to the discovery of the Murge, we are talking about that area rich in karst formations between alleys and stone houses, which ideally represents the central part of Puglia, and that goes to touch the provinces of Bari, Barletta-Andria-Trani, Taranto and finally Brindisi. Daily tour with Van 9 seats, comfortable and equipped with air conditioning, conducted by professional drivers, able to convey the passion for the territory.

Starting at 9.00AM from Lecce, the first stop is Grottaglie after about 50 minutes of travel, the city famous for its its colorful ceramics. Near the famous "District of Ceramics", the Museum of Ceramics of Grottaglie tells the story of its craft tradition. Five sections and 400 artefacts: traditional use ceramics, with artifacts used for domestic services; the majolica, including dishes, jugs and devotional ceramic objects; the archaeological section, with finds dated between the 8th and 4th centuries B.C.; finally, a section dedicated to the cribs and one dedicated to contemporary ceramics constitute the important collections of the Museum. The historic center is a pleasant intermediate stop before reaching Matera. The famous city of the Sassi shows itself in all its ancient beauty. Here you will have plenty of time to visit the maze of narrow streets where worship and tradition create a unique atmosphere made up of churches and dwellings carved into the rock, the location of many famous films. Matera is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. At about 6.00PM we return to Lecce.
