The Basilicata is rugged with a wilder mountainous landscape, three national parks and two spectacular coastlines.

Medieval villages, chic coastal towns and a regional cuisine influenced by Basilicata’s history all add to its fascination.

Along the Tyrrhenian coast to the west, Basilicata’s principal coastal town of Maratea sits above a coastline of plunging cliffs and hidden coves with white sandy beaches.

Inland, the fascinating town of Matera, with its maze-like collection of cave dwellings and rock churches, gives you a glimpse of one of the world’s oldest towns.
