Potenza & Lucania

The Apennines of “Lucania”, the old name for the region now called Basilicata, are the main feature of the landscape of this destination, which is crossed by the Agri and Basento rivers. A territory that includes the 29 municipalities of the Appennino Lucano – Val d’Agri – Lagonegrese National Park, Norman fortresses, Angevin castles and ancient vestiges of the past, such as the beautiful Roman aqueduct of Sarconi and the remains of the ancient town of Grumentum. Not to be missed is the old town centre of Sasso di Castalda and a family visit to the Viggiano adventure park. Walking beneath the splendid beech trees in the Costara woods, where majestic birds of prey pass over, like the peregrine falcon and the golden eagle, will leave you feeling like part of a fairy tale. A charming atmosphere can also be attributed to Viggiano, the town of itinerant musicians, where the harp can be heard playing in the streets.
The winter brings snow to the villages and mountains, the skilift facilities on the Volturino and Sirino mountains are above 2,000 metres, affording great views and thrills to those who dare. Here is the highest mountain refuge in Basilicata, where you can end the day sipping an excellent local red wine.
Potenza is also very interesting, with its old city centre and wonderful Basilicata Archaeological Museum , an ideal destination for an unusual and entertaining trip.
