The beautiful ancient city of Matera is steeped in history and is home to the famous Sassi, a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site dating back over 7000 years. This city will be the European Capital of Culture 2019 and is really worth visiting.
Home to one of the oldest universities in the world and to the world-renowned opera composer Giuseppe Verdi, Parma is famous for many things including its ham and parmigiano cheese hence why it was named a UNESCO Creative City for Gastronomy in 2015. Now Parma will be the Italian Capital of Culture 2020 offering lots of exciting events for visitors.
