Basilicata

Basilicata

Nestled warmly between Calabria and Puglia this southern region is home to fresh country air, the beauties of nature, and the iconic flavours of the south. It’s greatest intrigue is found in Matera, where the limestone caves of Sassi set a unique mood. The region also touches two coastlines, the ionian and the Tyrrhenian, both of which showcase the south’s quintessential allure.
