Italy, the purpose-built resort will feature 238 one- and two-bedroom

countryside, as well as excursions to the Archaeological National Museum
in Metaponto and sites dating back to Magna Graecia. The UNESCO World
Heritage city of Matera, renowned for its centuries-old network of cave
dwellings, was selected European Capital of Culture 2019.
