Maratea Private tour: Italy's little bit of Rio

1 review
The tour of Maratea starts from the highest part of the city: Mount San Biagio. Here you can admire in all its beauty the statue of Christ the Redeemer, the symbol not only of the city of Maratea but of the whole region of Basilicata.<br><br>The second largest statue in the world as a dimension after Christ of Rio de Janeiro, the statue of Maratea is 21 meters tall, with a 19-meter arm opening and a face measuring 3 meters.<br><br>The statue was made of reinforced concrete covered with a mixture of white cement and Carrara marble and created by the artist Bruno Innocenti in 1965.<br><br>After admiring the Christ, the visit continues in the nearby Basilica of San Biagio, patron saint of the town. <br><br>The tour continues in the medieval village, with ancient houses with arches close to each other and divided only by narrow lanes and characteristic lanes that fociano in small squares paved in local stone.

I am so sorry to say this, but the owner of this shop was downright rude to me! I was about to purchase some dishcloths, but as I unfolded them , I found out that they were simply too large so I decided not to buy them. The owner said me, that I shouldn´t touch his things unless I am really willing to purchase them. This made me think that the only thing that is this shop about is money...and money straight away. It was a terrible experience and I won´t enter the shop anymore, even though I have a house near Maratea and I spend every summer there. maria

If you visit Maratea, you surely should not miss the Antica Casa del Tessuto. The owner and his wife welcomed us and were glad and proud to show us their beautiful hand made linen. We bought our self an enchanting local table cloth decorated with red peppers and tomatoes. The quality of the materials is rare and all the products are locally made.

You simply MUST go here if you are wandering the streets of maratea... It is a step back in time, back to more honest and elegant time. We walked out with 350euros worth of the most beautiful local linen. All hand made. You just can't find this type of thing in London anymore. it was a total pleasure from start to finish. Long may this establishment stay open!
