The Basilicata region is not visited by chance. It is a conscious decision to discover unique places where silence, colors and scents evoke unique sensations.
The small region of Basilicata is still unknown to many Italians. Here you will not find modernity or the hustle and bustle of the big cities. You can immerse yourself in a slow, relaxed atmosphere that is almost unusual for today.
You will visit the Basilicata region and spend 5 nights in beautiful Matera, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Together with your local guide, in the enchanting Matera, you will discover the apartments carved into the rocks, which have been well preserved over the centuries.
You will explore the two coasts of Basilicata, the Tyrrhenian coast, where you will get to know Maratea, the city of 44 churches, and the Ionian coast, known for its vast sandy beaches with eucalyptus and pine trees, and you will visit the towns of Metaponto and Policoro with the archaeological parks with ruins of Greek temples.
You also have the opportunity to visit the unknown area of Mount Vulture, which is covered by small villages and forests. Here the beauty of nature is combined with the history of the Middle Ages, the Normans, the Swabian period, as you can visit the city of Venosa as well as the castles of Melfi and Lagopesole.
Although this tour is short, we are sure that you will be enchanted by this unknown region.
