MATERA, ancient city built on the edge of an alcotana, or high rocky wall, whose caves were inhabited since prehistoric times. The city preserves, in addition to beautiful facades (seven hundred) and the strong Tramontano Castle on a height, some beautiful churches. The visit begins in the center.
On the afternoon of the fifth day we descend along a beautiful road with an open landscape and, leaving Montescaglioso on the left, a Benedictine abbey with a cloister dating back to 500, we reach the Bradano valley as far as Metaponto (44 from Matera), an interesting archaeological, seaside and tourist town, now undergoing a great deal of excavations. It was one of the most illustrious of Magna Graecia, founded in 743 B.C. There remain majestic remains of the Temple of Apollo Lycius, Temple of Ceres (or Pythagora), with 15 beautiful Doric columns; along the main road, important aquarium of recent construction.

Here is our 9-day itinerary in Puglia combining cities and beaches. We did not like the beaches in the Otranto area. I would go to the city of Otranto because it is very beautiful, but for the beach I would stay in the Ionian area. I would have stayed one night less in Otranto and prolonged in Gallipoli or similar and maybe visit Taranto.
Day 1: Arrival in Bari and pick up the car. Visit to the city, Basilica of St. Nicholas, historic center, walk along the promenade …. Dinner at “La Tana del Polpo”. Parking on the street is expensive, the closer to the center the more, 2 euros per hour and is valid until 20:00. Sundays free. In a more distant area it is 1 euro per hour. Night Bari
Day 3: Polignano a Mare (walk through the center and its viewpoints). The cove was very crowded. Then Monopoli (the same, walk through the center and castle of Charles V). Alberobello (visit to the Trulli district and lunch). Then Locorotondo (nice but you can do without) and Martina Franca (a surprise, I really liked it). Then we headed to Ostuni to unload the suitcase and since it was hot, we went to the beach (Torre Guaceto). In the evening, dinner in Ostuni and evening stroll through the lively center. Night in Ostuni
