A dramatic terrain of towering mountain ranges punctuated by age-old villages that seem to hang from the sky, and outlined by a craggy coastline indented with calm bays of aquamarine, Basilicata is an intoxicating balance between the extreme and the beautiful. A hidden treasure untouched by time and suspended in the authenticity of a bygone era, Basilicata offers its visitors a moment in history, rare and eternal, which will forever remain indelibly Southern Italian. Otherwise known as the ancient land of Lucania, Basilicata lies between the regions of Calabria and Puglia, and is framed by the Ionian and Tyrrhenian seas. One of Italy’s least visited regions, Basilicata is unique in its unspoiled nature and remains a veritable time capsule where vestiges from the Paleolithic Age, the time of the ancient Greeks and the Middle Ages can still be appreciated.
