Venosa tour guide: one of the most important roman places near Matera

Venosa was an important Roman city, its importance grew mainly thanks to the Via Appia and that allowed important trade. Nowadays Venosa is remembered also because here was born Horace Flacco, author of the famous "Carpe Diem".

The guided tour will start from the Archaeological Park where you can visit the thermal baths, the domus, the SS. Trinity and the amphitheater.

After the amphitheater the visit continues with S.S. Trinity composed of Ancient Church. Behind the apse you will visit the "unfinished" church, designed to contain a larger number of faithful, started in the mid-1100s and never finished.

The tour of Venosa continues in the historic center with a visit to the 16th-century Aragonese castle Pirro del Balzo. Inside there is the national archaeological museum that contains mainly Roman finds.

The guided tour ends with the external visit of the so-called house of Horace, dating back to the II century BC
