Famous for its resemblance to the ancient settlements of Jerusalem and Cappadocia, Matera remains one of the oldest inhabited cities in the world.
Venture out of the city with trips to Basilica San Nicola (in Bari), Centro Storico di Polignano a Mare (in Polignano a Mare) and I Trulli di Alberobello - World Heritage Site (in Alberobello). There's lots more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Sassi di Matera, walk around Parco della Murgia Materana, see the interesting displays at Casa Grotta di Vico Solitario, and make a trip to Casa Noha.

If you are flying in from Japan, the closest major airports are Bari Karol Wojtyła Airport, Brindisi – Salento Airport and Naples International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 13°C in December, and nighttime lows around 3°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 30th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
