Italy, Matera, 28 – 30 June 2017

The ride from Naples to Matera was very nice. Once I turned off the coast road traffic disappeared, winding roads through hills and rolling countryside with farmland, perfect if a little warm 35c hahaha but I was only wearing a long sleeved shirt so I did not cook.

Matera, also known as the “the Subterranean City”. The old city or the “Sassi” is a UNESCO world heritage site, a very interesting place. It is also a registered Knee killer :-).

The 2nd of July is the Festa Della Bruna in Matera and all the streets are lit up at night.
