Vulture

The realm of castles and woodland, Vulture is a land of Kings and Queens, Popes and scholars, Knights Templar and brigands. It’s off the beaten track in terms of mass tourism, but it’s no less interesting or appealing. Nature-lovers will feel quite at home here, thanks to the densely forested mountains with footpaths to explore during the pleasant weather of Spring and Autumn.

In this region, as you go from village to village, you can find a pattern of towers and castles surrounded by evocative settlements, like Melfi, with its Medieval architectural style, where every stone exudes its glorious history.

Moving on from these gems, you can discover this hidden corner of Italy by finding out about one of its great wines: l’Aglianico del Vulture DOCG. Thanks to volcanic soil around Monte Vulture, this wine’s grapes flourish. It’s often called the ‘Barolo del Sud’, or the Barolo of the South.

By finding out more about this complex wine, you’ll visit beautiful treasures set in woodlands, like Venosa, the home of the Roman poet Horace and one of the prettiest villages in Italy, along with Rapolla, with its hot thermal springs.
