Palazzo degli Abati is located in the Sassi, the UNESCO ancient historical area of Matera. In the Sassi there is a ZTL (LIMITED TRAFFIC AREA) and the access is allowed ONLY AND EXCLUSIVELY to residents.
Until 19th of August 2020 tourists are allowed to access to the Sassi just for loading / unloading luggage by communicating the details of the car previously to the hotels. The municipal administration issued a resolution on 5th of August 2020, without notice, that from 20th of August 2020 to 2nd of November 2020 the access to the Sassi is allowed ONLY to residents and IT IS NO LONGER ALLOWED to tourists for loading / unloading luggage.
Therefore we offer you the following 3 possibilities to reach our property (whichever solution you choose, the Sassi and the historic center can only be visited on foot, so you will not need a car during your stay)
1.FREE PARKING BY ROAD and COMING TO THE HOTEL ON FOOT
— we are lucky to be in a location very close to the ZTL gate of the Sassi, in Via D’Addozio, which is only 300m away from us. In the area just before the access to the Sassi, you can look for a parking space outside the ZTL gate, on the street, with free or paid parking spaces (0.50 cents per hour, except at night, in two daily time slots) and reach us on foot, getting off from Via D’Addozio (our property is located after the Church of Sant’Agostino: when you arrive at the “Baccus” restaurant, right in front of the Church of Sant’Agostino, keep going down in via D’Addozio for other 50 meters and then turn right where there is a narrow road that goes up, while Via D’Addozio will continue to go down; at the end of this road you’ll find us in the small square, to the right of the Rock Church of San Pietro Barisano / Casa Cava); the streets just before the Via D’Addozio ZTL gate, 300 meters from us, with free parking are Via Pentasuglia, Via Santa Cesarea, Via Piave, Via Volpe, Via Gattini and Via Santo Stefano
