Walking in Puglia and Basilicata

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Visiting the caves and Rupestrian churches in Matera.

What did you think of your group leader?

Nino was a knowledgeable, enthusiastic and extremely flexible guide who couldn't do enough for us and made wonderful recommendations about where to eat and what to visit in our free time. His ability to put together a pic nic which we all shared on our walk to the caves was fantastic. I very much enjoyed meeting Nino and his enthusiasm for the history and current way of life in Puglia and Basilicata was infectious.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Don't be intimidated by the walks if you are "not a walker" - they are easily doable for somebody with average fitness.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

I would love to return to these regions having just scratched the surface on this trip.
