Travelers who have been stuck at home for nearly two years are ready to see the world. With pent-up travel demand at an all-time high, the toughest decision seems to be where to go. 

Those looking to be welcomed with open arms need look no further than Matera, Italy. The Southern Italian city took the top spot in Booking.com’s just-released list of “the most welcoming places on Earth.”

“With claims as the world’s third oldest continuously inhabited settlement (after Aleppo and Jericho), Matera has broad appeal amongst a variety of traveler-tribes,” the booking website said. “Whether it’s history, great food, architecture or scenery – Matera has it all. The city is dominated by its unique stone features and natural caves, which have been excavated and extended over the past 1,000 years and recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1993. These iconic structures extend beautifully into the types of accommodation the city offers its visitors.”
