Hiking Around Matera

Jump to last reply

I am hoping to visit Matera and tbd points in Puglia next spring. I keep coming across mention of some cave-to-cave hikes you can do just outside Matera. I believe the name is Parco delle Chiese Rupestri di Matera, If anyone has visited this trail, or done any hiking in the vicinity of Matera, please share your experiences.
Is Franco still around? I read his 2011 trip report (http://www.fodors.com/community/europe/puglia-and-basilicata-impromptu-trip-food-report-revisited.cfm), and he mentioned it being difficult to find a guide, with the park having other issues. I am worried facilities such as trail marking may not be as good as in other parks I have visited in Italy. Since what we can do outside Matera (and independently vs with a guide) will determine how many nights we stay there, I am doing some preliminary research.
If you happen to have visited the nearby the Alta Murgia National Park, I would be interested in hearing anything about that as well--impressive trails or base towns in particular.
thanks in advance!
