If your trip to Matera is all organized but your travel itinerary is a bit on the empty side, we can give you a few hints and tips.
Stop by Palombaro Lungo. It's one attraction you'll usually find on many visitors' to-do lists. San Giovanni Battista Church and Tramontano Castle are also a stone's throw away and worth a detour.
Time to hit the open road and head out to Bernalda. Just 19 miles away, a day trip here is a no-brainer. Stop by Acquazzurra Water Park and Tavole Palatine to start learning the story of the region. Then top off your journey with a visit to Metaponto Archaeological Site.
Here are our suggestions on how to hit the road with some extra cash in your wallet:

Ticking off all the activities and sights that Matera is renowned for has never been easier with your own set of wheels.
You'll be glad to know that there's an impressive variety of both economy and high-end rentals in Matera. What you end up going for is largely dependent on your budget as well as what you plan to do.
