Basilicata, a region of peninsular Italy bordered by Puglia to the N-NE, Campania to the W, and Calabria to the S, it is crossed from north to south by the Lucano Apennine, the mountains of which, except for the Pollino Massif, on the boundary with Calabria, and the Sirino to the SW, do not exceed two thousand metres in height. The main rivers: the Sinni, the Agri, the Basento and the Bradano rise in the Apennines and flow into the Ionian Sea characterizing most of the orographical and climatic aspects of the region.
The most interesting aspects of this region are certainly ist mountains, where an intricate vegetation gives a fairytale air to the landscape – a feature of the Vulture area – alternates with less woody surroundings and where the erosive action of wind and water has marked the appearance of the Lucan Dolomites. The scenery which greets the tourist between Pietrapertosa and Castelmagno is spectacular: pinnacles rising to the sky almost as prehistoric monsters with dwellings hollowed out in the rock base as a defence against barbaric raids.
At Basilicata, there is tourist accommodation available in hotels, farm holiday, farmhouse, residence self-catering accommodation, b&b, rooms for rent, holiday homes, camp sites and tourist villages.
