  • Description


    I'm Paola, italian who lives in one of the most ancient cities in the world, Matera, in Basilicata. I believe that travelling and meeting new people is one of the most interesting and amazing experiences we can do in life. I have already travelled in Europe and for all my life wished to meet new people and practice languages; my priority is German, which I'm studing passionatedly. As it is such a beautiful language, I'm looking for an energetic German or Austrian girl who preferably speaks Italian (but not necessarily), so that we can do an unforgettable cultural exchange in which we help each other to improve our language skills and knowledge. Nevertheless I'd like to meet also young women from other countries like Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Scandinavia, United Kingdom, France and Griece. I can show you Matera, European Capital of Culture 2019. Hope to hear from you soon!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travellers will make a new interesting experience meeting a new culture and visiting Matera, fascinating city with a magic landscape. One of the most important aspects I want to point out is the value of making a new friendship, thanks to this experience.

  • Help


    Practicing languages, principally German; spending my days with conversations and cultural activities like going to concerts, reading books, travelling or simply go out for a walk; help with technical skills.

    As my main interest is to find new friends from different countries, there are no working hours as such but we fill the days with interesting trips to Matera or other cities nearby, going to concerts or just with long conversations.

    What else ...

    In their free-time my guests could visit the Sassi and the city center (by bus or on foot). There are Cafés, churches, belvedere, shops, meeting places in all city. Moreover obviously everyone can choose how to spent her's time off. Regarding my location, we could take the bus to reach the city centre or, if the host girl has a driving license, we can use my mother's car together.
