qq旭日Matera is a small town in southern Italy. The traffic is very inconvenient. You need to transfer trains or buses to Mali from Rome. The tourists who go to Matera are mainly Europeans and few Chinese. The main feature of Matera is the original cave crypts, part of which is currently abandoned, and the other part is home to locals, mainly for tourist services, opening bars, hotels, etc. This time I lived in a hotel converted from the abandoned church, which was a bit scary at night. Those who go to play are best to live in a hotel close to the street, so that it does not feel scary to come out, and the street is lively at night. On the whole, the old city is a declining city.
