Basilicata (also called Lucania) is a southern region between Calabria and Apulia, washed by Ionian and Tyrrhenian seas.
Who choose to visit this region is drawn by the possibility of enjoying new experiences, being in places far from stress and frenzy of modern life, among silence and amazing colours, scents and flavors.
The mountains are covered with woods and forests and dotted with small charming villages, some even at an altitude of 1000 m above sea level, where the air is pure and genuine flavors combine with nature and historical vestiges.
The area of Monticchio Lakes, even if less traversed than other regions, is one of the more spectacular of Basilicata. Lake Grande and Lake Piccolo are splendid, they fill two craters of the extint volcano of Mount Vulture, surrounded by greenery.
The Ionic coast, offers, in the two famous sea resorts of Metaponto and Policoro, wide sandy or pebbly beaches, partially concealed by pinewoods and rows of eucalyptus that give off a lovely scent.
On the Tyrrhenian side, the Gulf of Policastro, has high indented coasts, where steep promontories hide small beaches washed by an emeral sea.
Basilicata is divided in two provinces: Potenza (regional capital) and Matera.
