Basilicata is embedded between Calabria and Apulia , in the south of Italy. One does not stumble across this region accidentally but chooses to visit it if in search of a new experience, plunging into places where silence, colours, scents and flavours remove the visitor from the frenzy and stress of modern life, offering unique sensations.
The woods and forests that cover the mountains are dotted with small and charming villages, some even at an altitude of 1000 mt, where pure air, genuine flavours and the beauties of nature are combined with historical vestiges satisfying any wish.
Beautiful, yet not very explored, is the area of the Monticchio Lakes, one of the most spectacular locations in Basilicata. Lake Grande and Lake Piccolo, are two splendid stretches of water that fill the two craters of Mount Vulture, now extinct, and are surrounded by thick and lush vegetation.
Even though it is a mainly internal region, Basilicata is on two seas: the Ionian and Tyrrhenian Sea. The Ionic coast, with the two famous sea resorts of Metaponto and Policoro, offers wide beaches, either sandy or pebbly, partially surrounded by pinewoods and rows of eucalyptus that give off a lovely scent.
The Gulf of Policastro, on the Tyrrhenian side, has higher and more indented coasts, where steep promontories alternate with small beaches, washed by a crystal-clear sea.
The provinces of the region are Potenza (regional capital) and Matera.
