South Italy and most of its little villages, is an area so little known to the European tourism yet in a delightful land wealthy of natural beauties, such as the Arch of Arcomagno, a natural arch of rock, entrance to an attractive coved beach,  with calm turquoise sea; the Faraglioni of Capri, beautiful sea rocks in the sea of Capri, one of many in the Amalfi Coast; or the Etna Volcano, still active and one of Sicily's biggest tourist attractions. History and architecture are also very important factors of southern Italy's culture and tourist attractions, like the temple ruins of Agrigento - Sicily; Capri offering one of Italy's most beautiful piazzas (town square) in the middle of town, Piazzetta, completely closed up, giving the impression of a courtyard, surrounded by many shops and cafes and the Torre dell'Orologio (Tower of Clock); or the over 40 mt. high statue of the Christ in Maratea situated on a hill over 300 mt. high offering a most breath-taking site over the port of Maratea. Another great piece of southern Italy history, from Calabria to be exact, is the Bronzi di Riace: two magnificent bronze, human-size, male statues, found in the gulf of Riace, now showing in the museum of Reggio Calabria, representing the Greek conception of heroism and beauty for their classical composure and dynamic vitality.
Great tourist attractions for both rural and coastal holidays are also the town of Rivello, based on the graceful Basilicata mountains with its typical hystorical houses that can be found in all old parts of most of southern Italy's towns, and the Trulli, typical Apulia houses with cone shaped roofs. Not to mention the delicious cuisine and friendly people, all part of a world waiting to be explored and taken advantage of.

Basilicata, magical and vague. Land of light and clay, woods and mountains, that can lead to the desire of its discovery without noticing. This is a small region who's solitary mountains gently fall to the Tyrrhenian Sea on one side and to the Ionian Sea on the other. Basilicata is surrounded by other territories of Southern Italy, like Calabria that leads to Sicily, Campania with it's Amalfi Coast and Sorrento, or Apulia with it's Trulli Houses. It's "old" little towns keep traditions and customs still very alive and reveal them to visitors in a discrete yet frank way. They feature small roads and alleyways that meet and lead from one side of town to the other, the "piazzas" where inhabitants meet for a relaxing game of cards just outside their favourite little bar. Some lay peacefully on the rocks allowing a silent and reserved stay with great views of it's rugged coast, others lay next to the beach, surrounded by nature, offering fun and entertainment. Basilicata is one of Italy's regions less populated however people of various ethnic origins lived here like Albanians who made of this small land their ideal for survival throughout the years until today.

Climate


The region's climate has a typical Mediterranean character with high temperature's during the winter season and low temperatures during the summer. This is caused by the irregular rain falls during the year and effected by it's position in Southern Italy, surrounded by the chains of mountains and influenced by the three seas that wet her: the Ionian and the Tyrrhenian.

Morphological Structure


Basilicata, a region of peninsular Italy bordered by Puglia to the N-NE, Campania to the W, and Calabria to the S, has a surface area of 9992 sq. km. and a population of 603,000 counting the 131 municipalities of Potenza, the chief town, and Matera, 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 geographical and climatic aspects of the region. The most interesting aspects of this region are certainly first 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 barbarian raids.
