Basilicata is an undiscovered and unspoilt region situated between Campania, Calabria and Puglia. Stunning coastlines, fishing villages, rugged mountains and green valleys are only a few of the attractions on offer. The tourist season runs from June to September.
The town of Maratea sits on the best of the coastline and benefits from sandy coves and crystal clear water. The town consists of two distinct parts. A small fishing village and harbour nestle below a collection of colourful houses, restaurants and bars. Overlooking all this is Belvedere point on which stands a huge marble statue of Christ. The old town makes up the second area, perched on the hillside, with narrow streets, charming squares and a mix of shops to suit all tastes.
