Shore Excursion from Bari Port to Matera Sassi and Alberobello Trulli

Enjoy a truly magical day shore excursion from Bari to two awe-inspiring tourist destinations.

Matera: This town has two old districts called Sassi (meaning stones) that in 1993 were declared a world heritage site because they represent "the most outstanding, intact example of a troglodyte settlement in the Mediterranean region, perfectly adapted to its terrain and ecosystem". Owing to its timeless setting this town of stone has been the backdrop for several movies including Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of Christ”.

Alberobello: The historic centre of this town is also a Wold Heritage site due to the existence of its’ trulli, of which there are about 1,500. These unique buildings with conical roofs are made of dry stone (without mortar) and have survived intact and fully functional up to the present day. On this tour you will find out about the history, architecture and the mystery and symbolism of their finials. You will love the atmosphere of this fairytale hamlet.

    Stop At: Porto di Bari, 70123, Bari Italy

    A local driver in a comfortable air-conditioned van will pick you up from your cruise ship dock and take you first to the charming city of Matera where you will mett your local guide and visit the two Unesco site - Sasso Caveoso and Sasso Barisano. This is a truly unique experience among rupestrian (carved in the rocks) churches and houses that are actually partly carved out of the calcareous stone and partly built with blocks extracted from the rock.

    Then you enjoy a stroll along the panoramic street that overlooks the canyon and wander through the ghost town that has been used as a movie set on several occasions. We visit one (or more) rupestrian church and typically furnished cave dwellings to get a feel of what life was like for a peasant family here up until the 2nd World War.

    There is also the opportunity to visit the medieval and baroque part of the city, the belvedere, to view the city’s stunning skyline.

    Matera is renowned for its bread and specifically its focaccio so, for lunch we suggest a quick stop for a tasty and filling focaccio!

    We next travel to Alberobello where we visit the two old districts of Trulli – Aia Piccolo and Monti. You may then choose a wine and/or olive tasting or a quick stop in Polignano a Mare to enjoy the breathtaking view from the terraces upon the cliffs to the blue sparkling sea below. A perfect way to end a magical day out!
