Holidays to Basilicata

Basilicata holidays

The neighbouring mountainous region of Basilicata, known as the instep of Italy’s boot, briefly touches the Tyrrhenian Sea. This dramatic coastline is home to the historic town of Maratea which encompasses a pretty harbour; twenty beaches (sand and pebble) and a historic city centre with many churches and a towering 70m high ‘Statua del Redentore’. The region is also home to the ancient city of Matera, known for its surreal ‘Sassi di Matera’ – prehistoric houses dug into the local tufa rock. These natural caves were the first houses of the Neolithic inhabitants of the region, who transformed the natural landscape into new forms of architecture. Often chosen for authenticity as the backdrop to many biblical films, Matera remains one of the most admired cities in Italy – not to be missed.
