After breakfast at the hotel, we’re off to see the old town of Maratea, then we go explore Acquafredda, the castle, the impressive statue of Christ the Redeemer and the narrow panoramic route to Trecchina, with its breathtaking views.

Check-in, dinner and overnight at local hotel.

DAY 4: ALIANO / CRACO / SCANZANO

Breakfast at the hotel and departure for Aliano. In makeshift camps, under starry skies, loves are born that fate has marked. Suspended between two seas, the devalued musicians renamed “The wind turbines” cross impervious paths, reach perched villages and rural areas, living an existential experience that culminates in Aliano, the confinement village of the great poet, writer and painter, Carlo Levi . And here, with the famous Aglianico del Vulture, who entered the Olympus of European wines with the DOCG, the picaresque musicians raise a toast in honor of Gian Maria Volontè who, in 1979, interpreted Carlo Levi in ​​the film “Cristo si is stopped in Eboli ”by Francesco Rosi. Passing through Craco, the ghost town, where “modernity has been defeated”, and heading towards the Ionian coast, the four dreamers get lost, thus arriving late to “Scanzonissima”, a song festival hosted in Scanzano Jonico.  Departure to Matera, dinner and overnight at the hotel.

DAY 5: MATERA

Breakfast at the hotel. Morning tour of Matera’s Sassi. Matera is one of the oldest cities in the world, situated on two natural amphitheatres (Sasso Caveoso and Sasso Barisano), with a central Civita.
