This experience lasts 2 hours

Digging experience - The Sassi are houses dug into the calcarenitic rock itself, which is characteristic of Basilicata and Apulia, locally called "tufo" although it is not volcanic tuff or tufa. You can feel the conditions of ancient times: how people made caves made equipment for everyday using. With some historical information and beautiful panorama of Murgia you can make real archaeologist memories.
