Il Cammino Materano
On foot along Via Peuceta
On the road towards Matera, the 2019 European Capital of Culture: a 7-day journey between the Puglia and Basilicata regions, between past and present, from the historical legacies of Frederick II to the infinite horizons of the Murge plateau that has been shaped by the work of man over the course of centuries.
Hiking during the day involves walking through olive and almond groves, vineyards and drywalls; whereas evenings involve discovering the flavours of traditional dishes prepared in masserie farmhouses.
Until suddenly coming upon the most famous Sassi in the world: a unique kind of beauty, suspended between the earth and the sky.
