If you’re thinking “where did I see this?”, the answer is: nowhere. Or maybe it’s “nativity scene”. Yes, Matera can be magical, even in Winter.


Breathtaking views.

Not just the Sassi! The Gravina Canyon and the Murgia can offer you the beauty of nature and the art of the Cave Churces. 

The Gospel According to Matera.

From Pier Paolo Pasolini to Mel Gibson, lots of great directors chose Matera to represent biblical Jerusalem. We can follow in their footsteps, searching for the same angle views.

When you visit Matera, you’ll be taking thousands of pictures of the countless, amazing views over the Sassi and the Gravina canyon. Memories that often get lost somewhere in your smartphone. This is why we created this new service.

Create, fix and really take home your memories: book your guided tour of Matera with us and ask us to lend you our beautiful Fuji Instax Mini 9! It’s so user-friendly that even children can easily take nice shots with it! The magic of the images slowly appearing on a film that they can actually hold in their hand makes the experience very exciting for them. But also for the adults is absolutely fun, seasoned with a touch of nostalgia.
But hey, don’t take it all wrong: the Mini 9 is not a toy! The pictures this little guy can take are gorgeous!

Only the best guides!

The Sassi of Matera are not just a “Nativity Scene” or some ghetto where the poor people used to live. They are the result of a long and articulated evolution of one of the most ancient human settlements on Earth! To know and understand all the shades and complexities and to transmit these to the visitors, a license and the passion are important, but not enough. You also need a deep cultural background and high professionality. Features that we surely have! Our staff is made only of graduated, experienced professionals. Try us! Your guided tour of the Sassi will be a fulfilling, complete experience.
