Welcome! My name is Silvio Scocuzza and I will be happy to be your licensed Tour Guide of Matera, Basilicata Region and nearby Puglia (Apulia).
My biggest passions are travelling and my homeland, the Basilicata or Lucania, the only italian Region to be called in two different ways!
After many travels, studies and work experiences all around the world and after having learned very well English and German, I am glad to be back to my homeland and to offer to you my Know-how to help you organize “your” journey in Matera and surroundings, leading you to the discovery of a largely unexplored part of Italy. Let yourself be excited through beautiful sceneries where history, culture and tradition fuse with nature and the friendliness of its people.
May I ask you a question? How would it be to watch a beautiful 4D movie but without the sound and the special effects? Well, if you are travelling around Matera, Basilicata and Apulia without a professional and licenced Tour Guide, an expert of the territory, you will enjoy only the half of it!
The “value added” of each journey is given by the integration with the territory you are visiting and by the direct contact with the local people, who are living and transforming it. For this reason I created some itineraries divided between Matera and its Surroundings; all itineraries can be tailored according to your needs and will make you feel the protagonists of an unforgettable experience.
Please feel free to contact me for any information or help you may need: I will be very happy to advice you, guide you and help you to get the best from your stay!
