In the Basilicata region of Southern Italy sits Matera, a historic cave city that has been named the European Capital of Culture in 2019. Omio can get you to this unique destination with 20 percent off one-way trips on Miccolis buses!
In addition to great food and views, Matera boasts sassi (caves), ancient dwellings that have housed many generations of locals. The city's first inhabitants claimed the majestic limestone caves as their own around 7,000 years ago. These sassi have earned the city UNESCO World Heritage Site status.
Today, many of the sassi have transformed into candle-lit restaurants, bars, and one-of-a-kind hotels. Stroll around the sassi to explore Baroque churches and palaces and marvel at how the town lits up with a golden glow at sunset.
Garnering European Capital of Culture is no easy feat but after exploring Matera, one can see why. Throughout the year, Matera hosts dozens of exhibitions, events and shows featuring more than 800 artists.
Located in a remote corner of the Basilicata region, Matera is a bit off the beaten path and can be tricky to reach with public transport. Luckily, Miccolis—as sole provider—offers connections between the Puglia and Campania regions and Matera.
