The La Casa di Lucio is a cave hotel of the "diffuso" type, which means it has a reception and other infrastructure in a central hous, but the rooms are spred over neighbouring cave houses. Guests have to walk, probably some staircases, and the room is actually a complete former cave house. The hotel claims to be the first of its type in Matera.
