    Is not just a Museum, is an incredible journey, a unique and inimitable. Matera know you well enough and I lived there, and this is a must see when friends ask me what to visit in the city, especially if you have little time. The visit was amazing once again! Thanks to Donato.

  • This museum is the result of 30 years of work. Cardenas who will welcome you and will answer all your questions about life in the sassi. The laboratory-museum recreates the environments of the houses of those who once lived in the sassi with objects, furniture and pictures. It's a real blast from the past. I recommend it to all comers. I also recommend reading the book tales of the Museum translated into English that collects testimonies of those who lived in the sassi.

Where to stay in Matera

Instead of booking your rooms at a conventional hotel in Matera, consider staying at one of the city's cave hotels. The rock settlements in this area are part of a World Heritage Site, and several local hotels offer lodgings at cave dwellings dug into the limestone rocks, complete with private bathrooms, satellite TV, air conditioning, and mini-bars. Alternatively, you can also stay at a small B&Bs or private inn in the old town, where you can explore most of Matera's main attractions on foot.
