DAY 2 - A DAY IN MATERA
We start the day with our fresh breakfast including homemade Italian cakes and Marisa’s homemade marmalades and jams. Other types of breakfasts will be available also throughout the week - guests just need to ask!
After breakfast, we take the short 13km trip to the ancient city of Matera where guests will meet their English speaking tour guide and spend the morning exploring the breathtaking Sassi di Matera.
For lunch, we will take our guests to a very special bar situated deep in the Sassi, where they will enjoy beautiful views over a light lunch and a cocktail. After relaxing, we’ll take them to an even more incredible view and then they’ll have some time to explore, eat an ice cream and look around the shops.
In the late afternoon, our guests will visit a local baker who will lead them through an hour long workshop in making the famous ‘Pane di Matera’ (Materan Bread). Massimo will explain the history and culture of our unique bread and also show everyone exactly how it’s made. In the evening, we’ll return to the agriturismo for a home-cooked dinner.
