How to spend our time

We’re spending seven days in Puglia, traveling by public transportation. Matera is our first stop. How many days do we need to explore Matera? We are thinking of hiring a guide for the Sassi and enjoying the town on our own. It appears that two nights and one day would be fine. More questions to come!

Without a car, two nights should be just right.

What places have you identified of interest? What month?

I would probably follow with somewhere in the Itria Valley, then finish in one of the towns along the coastal train line that allows you to get to the airport (presuming you are flying out of Bari).

We are here in Matera now - staying four nights.

In my opinion, two nights (only one full day) would not be enough time here - but we are very slow travellers.

It’s amazing, by the way...
