    ... roughly knowing where we were going, and also roughly not.... We stumbled upon La Raccolta delle Acque, a unique water collection system that was implemented in the 1800s to harvest that water from the roofs and roads of Matera, filter it through the rocks and channel it to extremely large cisterns that had been carved into the rock undground and then sealed using clays.

    Following this, we continued down the road and found another rock carving shop, with ...

    ... out in someone’s property. We walked among fig and olive trees that easily could have been 900 years old, and broke into storage sheds. The only others out there were the buzzing saccades – very Blair Witch.

    Turned out Ostuni was one of the highlights of the entire trip. Its historic core was pedestrian only on top of a hill with white washed buildings with green or blue doors ...

This was a delightful town with spectacular views and no foreign tourists. Nicknamed the 'Pearl of the Adriatic Sea', Polignano a Mare is characterised by a jaggered coastline, crystal-clear waters and partially submerged sea caves. It's famous son ...

    A long travelling day on the bus today. We left Rome relatively early on the A1 past Naples and Pompeii. Lovely views of Salerno on the way. Arrived in matera, the place where Mel Gibson's Passion of the Christ was filmed. A very old town inhabited by the Capodochians, all built into the rock. One of the poorest places as late as the 1960's when the government removed people ...
