Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I heard about Matera many times before I finally visited it. But truthfully, I didn't know anything about it and didn't really have many expectations. When I visited, I just thought the modern part of the city is really pleasant and clean. And than I came to the edge of the old city and lost all words. It was magnificent, breathtaking, tranquill and vibrant at the same time. You can take a walk through it, stop at restaurants, have a glass of wine or maybe coffee in the morning. There are plenty of opportunities for winning pictures and plenty of opportunities to just observe, thinking of the past and what life must have been like back than.

Seeing Matera for the first time is honestly one of my best moments, which I will cherish for a really, really long time. I highly recommend it!

We visited the Belvedere around mid morning on our exit from Matera. A great view point with a stunning panoramic outlook of the Ancient City of Matera & old caves from the other side of the plunging ravine. The crucifixion scene in the Passion of The Christ was filmed here and I can just see how befitting it was because Matera looks almost Biblical in the background. There are trails below that you can walk along to explore the old caves. We just went to the edge of the Belvedere away from the parking area, to take our photos and admire the breathtaking view! We also saw a wedding shoot here just as we were leaving. The couple looked stunning & I can only imagine that their professional photos must be absolutely magical set against the picturesque backdrop of the Sassi. Highly recommended for an awesome view and appreciation of this Ancient City.

This is a great place to go prior to getting to Matera. It was really a great viewpoint to see Matera from the other side of the ravene. If you are up for it, you can even walk to the caves down below, although it is a lot of walking. It was also a cool walk because there were cattle walking around the road and fields, eating, and it felt very rustic.

We made a stop in the morning. It was hot and sunny but the views were truly stunning! Many busses and cars were arriving too. Walk closer to the edge, don’t only stay at the parking! It’s much better there. Also, you will see several trails going down. Have good walking shoes to follow those and discover a couple of caves (in both directions- left and right). It was a lot of insects and lizards, which I’m scared of, but the effort was so worth it! Caves inside are quite dirty (people urinate there, leave trash and I don’t want to know what else they do there) but the view!!! Wow! And the photos are amazing! I assume it’s much more romantic and picturesque with the sunset and when Matera has the lights on. But probably more popular too for this reason. But during the day it was also breathtaking and we spent a wonderful hour there. Highly recommend not to miss.

We had been very lucky that our bus took a detour to this Belvedere before our visit to Matera. After seeing it from the distance, we were more prepared for the walking tour in Matera.

We really enjoyed the stunning view of the gorge, the cave dwellings and the centuries-old appearance of Sassi di Matera on the mild mid-afternoon sun.

From Matera drove to the so-called Murge countryside, an area of karst rock typical of the region. We crossed the deep canyon running on the side of the city and came across a viewpoint which provided an incredible sight of the city of Matera. Here we enjoyed walking along the rocks dotted with caves once inhabited by farmers and their flocks and the random medieval church hidden from the view such as the one of Madonna delle Tre Porte with interesting religious frescoes.

This location offers a chance to explore nearby caves, and gives splendid views of this unique town

You can see most of the Sassi area, including the Chiesa dei Santi Pietro e Paolo , which seems to be perched on a cliff edge

One of the most beautiful and picturesque views that I have ever witnessed, this enchanting landscape, built entirely from stone is one of the most beautiful sights in the world and is obviously one of the many italian's UNESCO heritage.
Amazing visual spectacle. Furthermore, in this place it was filmed the movie "The Passion of the Christ." Do not miss it.

We visited this site during the day and were escorted by a local so getting there was easy by car. This spot gives you the perfect view of Matera, ravine and the sassi. We explored a few ancient caves and marveled at the vivid spiritual paintings that still remain on the cave walls.
