      Brindisi or Porte Cesareo?

      Basilicata Jan 27, 2014 at 5:30 AM

      Our coming holiday I would like to spend exploring "the heel" and geografically both Brindisi and Porto Cesareo suit well for short rides everyday. But my children (teenagers) are very specific about the beach. To be more specific, the sea. They like when you can snork. The water should be clear and there are should be some species to watch (no matter fish or crab), they also don't like it when it is shallow for quite a long time ( as it is along Venice Rivierra). Could you please help me with a choice?

      Are you familiar with Matera? We may be in the city for 2 nights to do some photo-shooting, and I'd like to know what hotels you can recommend that have cave bedrooms and spectacular views of the town (I'm cheating on a couple of the photos, to shoot them from my bedroom window!). I don't mind if it's pricey, but it has to be worth the cost. I'm leaning toward the Hotel Sassi, and recent reviews of the place are favorable.
