Very nice experience to discover Matera in a different way. Be prepared for Italian traffic with accompanying bells and horns. Once out of the center you come to secondary roads where there is little to no traffic. You will cross a beautiful landscape that will take you to the caves. Bicycles were well arranged by Pino who also gave us an explanation of the route. He and his wife are very helpful and speak good English by the way. Very satisfied!
