A longer day than usual as we again take undulating quiet lanes through the Molise and Puglia foothills to Matera, although you do have the option of going direct via the autostrada. Along the way we pass the vast hilltop fortress in Lucera, built in 1233.
Our modern hotel in Matera has all facilities including a gym, two swimming pools, sauna, beauty salon and laundry. More importantly to us males, the owner is a car enthusiast and has a collection which includes a veteran Mercedes! Overnight Matera.
