Бари

Situated in the ‘heel’ of this boot-shaped country, Bari is famous for its beaches, old town and fabulous food. The surrounding area of Puglia is home to many intriguing attractions, such as the unusual conical ‘trullo’ houses that are scattered across this landscape and the mysterious Sassi caves in the atmospheric troglodyte town of Matera.

THE “SASSI” IN MATERA

 

Цена: € 50 на възрастен, € 35 на дете

 

Duration: approx. 4 hours

 

Enjoy a 1-hour drive to Matera, the city of the weird and wonderful “Sassi”, caves and the first town in the world to be declared a UNESCO World Heritage site. These caves were inhabited from the Neolithic times right up until 1952. Perhaps because of its unique and tangible history, the atmosphere here is extraordinary and the place exudes a mystic air. We will either visit a furnished Sassi cave museum house or one rocky church that are symbol of the local culture. Many film directors have chosen to set films in Matera as it is such an evocative place and Mel Gibson’s controversial film, “The Passion of the Christ”, was shot here.

Please note: guests will be met by guides in Matera; the bus drive is not guided. This tour is not suitable for passengers who experience mobility problems; long periods of walking.

THE CAVES OF CASTELLANA & POLIGNANO A MARE

 

Цена: € 45 на възрастен, € 32 на дете

 

Duration: 4 hours

 

Leave the port for an hour’s drive to the Caves of Castellana where we will meet our guide for a fantastic subterranean journey through the cave complex. The caves were first explored in 1938, although their existence had been known since the XVIII century. At 60 metres deep, marvel at the cave chambers and the myriad of alabaster stalagmites and stalactites encrusted with calcite crystals. Back above ground we will travel on to Polignano a Mare, a lovely village perched high on a rock with wonderful views over the sea. Choose a guided tour of the village or to explore the pretty whitewashed streets on your own, meandering under the flowered arches and enjoying the hillside terrace that overlook the sea.

Please note: excursion not recommended for guests who are claustrophobic or with mobility problems. The itinerary inside the caves is on uneven, slippery path.
