After seeing #Matera for so long in movies, I thought it was just this ancient stone city. When I arrived, I found it all modern with paved streets and traffic. We had to park and walk to the ancient part, pictured here, the Sassi of Matera. Then, there are different districts and neighborhoods but I swear, there is a photo-op at every angle. It is fun to get lost in the sassi because it feels like you’ve stepped back in time, and then it’s really so easy to find your way back. All I could think of while walking through the narrow hilly streets was the history.. if those walls could talk..
