Sunrise Bike Tour on the Murgia Park with Breakfast

Sunrise Bike Tour on the Murgia Park with Breakfast

Have you ever woken up at dawn? If so, you have surely noticed that everything is more magical at that time. The warm light lengthens the shadows and enhances the shapes. Cycling early in the morning, especially on very hot days, has the advantage of not suffering much from the temperature while enjoying the clean air. Cycling up to the Murgia park (about 8km), even if it has a challenging climb in the last two km, is a very beautiful experience because it allows you to admire Matera from a unique point of view and, doing it in the morning, allows you to enjoy the better light to observe the details and understand how the city has evolved from simple caves to a tangle of alleys and steps with the houses below that form the basis of those above.
