“With claims as the world’s third oldest continuously inhabited settlement (after Aleppo and Jericho), Matera has broad appeal amongst a variety of traveler-tribes,” the booking website said. “Whether it’s history, great food, architecture or scenery – Matera has it all. The city is dominated by its unique stone features and natural caves, which have been excavated and extended over the past 1,000 years and recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1993. These iconic structures extend beautifully into the types of accommodation the city offers its visitors.”
