On the basis of our academic and professional experience, we strongly believe that the fruition of our Cultural Heritage must go through continuos interaction between parties: monuments, operators and, above all, users. A satisfied and conscious user is an extra asset for the safeguard of Cultural Heritage!

We only use professional authorized tour guides with a solid academic background.
Oops, maybe we got carried away: over 150 Cave Churces among Sassi and Murgia. Mostly with frescoes. Santa Lucia alle Malve, Santa Barbara, San Giovanni in Monterrone, San Nicola dei Greci… dozens of little masterpieces of medieval art, in a triumph of red, blue and gold over the naked rocky background. You should avoid it if you suffer from the Stendhal syndrome.
Bread & More
Ok, we are a little touchy about the bread. But ours is the best bread in the world and the food is good, nay, delicious. If you know where to go, of course! If you’d like a route including a deep immersion in our food&wine, ask us. Our CEO weighs 95 kg, but his blood analysys are perfect: he eats a lot, but he eats well!
PS: About Batman, we’ve got the copyright on the Bat Cave… ask us why!
