Fodor's Expert Review Palazzo Viceconte

Via San Potito 7, Matera, Basilicate, 75100, Italy

If cave-dwelling isn't your style, consider staying at this hotel in a former aristocratic residence—a lovingly restored property, where each unique guest room showcases oil paintings, antiques, and high vaulted frescoed ceilings. The best suite even has an alcove bathroom with a panoramic view, so you can sit in the tub and gaze out over the grotto-pitted valley. From the hotel, it is a short walk both to the central Piazza Vittorio Veneto and down into the Sassi labyrinth.
