Great views and right at the centre of the town in the heritage area. Good restaurants and little shops nearby, very handy for the walk down into the gorge, and visiting the main rock church, opposite. Matera is stunning, a very special landscape which has to be seen up close to be appreciated, photographs really don't do it justice. It's the 2019 European City of Culture, visit soon before everyone else gets to hear about it, mostly Italian visitors when we were there.
