The best way to explore the Sassi is to start with a guided tour. You can book b these through your hotel or at one of o the many information points. Some speak s English better than others! But t hey will reveal gems that you might miss m if you went alone such as re eproductions of cave interiors, s showing how families used to live. Do D wear shoes with a sole that grips because b the paths can be very slippery and steep. I’d then suggest a couple of f hours exploring without a guide. Pa art of the fun is coming across the un nexpected. I discovered a charming gu uest house which offered morning coffee on the terrace. I could have sat th here all day, gazing at the view over c ave roofs and hills. I also found a c cheese shop as well as souvenir s stalls in the opening of caves, selling a anything from fresh olives to pottery la amps. Be careful, however! It’s easy t to get lost. On the other hand, locals a are very happy to help you find your w way. I also stumbled across the Sassi I In Miniatura – a model of the old city w which had been painstakingly carved over o the years by a local.
