  • This might be long, but it's worth the read...Have you ever heard of a place called Matera in Italy? Well, don't feel bad if you haven't because prior to me meeting my Italian beau, I hadn't either.🙊 Located in the region of #Basilicata, in the south of Italy, Matera is one of the most fascinating places I've ever visited (ok, so what I might say this about most of the places I've been, but this place is on another level!). 🇮🇹 The city is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities IN THE WORLD (after Aleppo and Jericho) and is also a #UNESCO World Heritage Site! And even cooler, Matera took center stage this year as Europe's Capital of Culture! So basically THE city to visit in 2019 in all of Europe! 🌍🇮🇹 In the video you'll notice that the town lies in a small canyon with a complex of cave dwellings, or #sassi (meaning 'stone' in Italian) carved right into the mountainside! That's right, people live, work and dine INSIDE of these caves...SUPER COOL! Many hotels, AirB&B's, restaurants, bars and cafes can be found nestled inside as well. 
I spent my days wandering the narrow lanes and steps that ran throughout the caves (definitely a workout!) and eating some of the freshest and tastiest Italian cuisine ever! And guys, I mean the scenery and photo opportunities are endless; with views from every nook and cranny, ledge, corner and walkway as you maneuver your way through the city. 
Matera, Italy...PUT IT ON YOUR LIST OF PLACES TO VISIT!
