Car: If you prefer to come by car (car or motorcycle) or rent it in Bari or elsewhere, you have several choices.
- For those coming from the East, once in Bari take the SS 96 to Altamura, hence the SS 99. Tip: if you are in Alberobello or surroundings, venture along the internal road (SP53 or SP239). Crossing the Valle d’Itria is a wonderful experience. But go slow, and watch out for cyclists!
- Those coming from the West can choose to take the A3 as far as Sicignano, follow the E847 to Ferrandina, from here take the SS7 to Matera. Alternatively, from Naples you can take the E842 Napoli-Canosa, exit at Candela and, from here, via the SS655 “Bradanica” reach Matera. This last path is certainly very interesting from a landscape point of view. In spring, the abandoned farmhouses along the Basentello valley are immersed in a sea of yellow flowers. However, once you pass Lavello you will not find people or rest areas, so refuel first!
- Those coming from the South can follow the A3 to Atena Lucana, reach Brienza and from here, through the SS95, reach Potenza and continue to Matera. A less panoramic but faster alternative: exit the A3 at Tarsia Nord, reach Sibari and, from here, follow the SS106 Ionica to Metaponto. The SP3 will take you to Matera, going up the Bradano, in about 30 minutes.
- Bus: Matera is connected to the whole of Italy and to different European locations through the lines of some transport companies: Marinobus | Liscio | Flixbus | Miccolis | Marozzi | FAL
