Basilicata is a land of mountains and sea, old villages and little towns, forests and vineyards, canyons and ancient volcanos. It’s a land that hides several secrets, it’s one of the oldest and most varied landscapes of Italy and it’s spread with perched villages and interesting little towns. From the area of Vulture-Melfese to the area around Potenza and the Lucanian Dolomites, the Pollino mountain range and the Mount Sirino, the Agri valley and the surrounding hills down to the Metaponto plain along the Ionian Sea’s shores Basilicata is a mix of different landscapes. Matera is the pearl of the region, the great protagonist in the world this year. It’s the European Capital city of Culture for the year 2019 and its amazing Stones have been included in the Unesco’s heritage then there are the “gravine” (sort of canyons), the Murgia plain and the archaeological natural park of the rock churches which is one of the most appreciated tourist destinations this year.
