Bread of Altamura & the Sassi of Matera
Visit an ancient bakery in Puglia’s bread capital and discover Matera, a unique and ancient city filled with tales of bygone centuries

This morning visit the town of Altamura where you will stop at a DOP bread producer for an insider look at how the traditional breads of the region are made. Here you will be welcomed into the bakery where the techniques and secrets for making these special breads will be revealed. The visit will conclude with a tasting of the renowned Altamura bread and some incredible focaccia.  

Next there will be a visit Matera, a unique and ancient city full of mystery. Set alongside a dramatic ravine, the city offers many striking views and centuries of fascinating social history – a real insight into the life of Southern Italians through the centuries. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Matera was the chosen location for a number of recent blockbuster movies, including the latest 007 movie ‘No Time to Die’. Our expert guide will lead you on a walking tour of the ‘sassi’, ancient cave dwellings restored for current use as homes, shops and restaurants.
