Basilicata

Basilicata is the stunningly beautiful and relatively undiscovered region occupying the ‘instep’ of the boot of Italy. Bordering on Campania to the west, Puglia to the north and east, and Calabria to the south, it has one short southwestern coastline on the Tyrrhenian Sea and a longer one to the southeast on the Gulf of Taranto on the Ionian Sea.

The greatest draw for visitors to Basilicata is Matera, whose distinctive Sassi – cave-like houses and churches in the heart of the town – give it a dramatic setting. The prettiest coastal area surrounds the historic town of Maratea: here you’ll find crystal clear waters secluded sea grottos.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has issued travel advisories advising against all non-essential travel to Northern Italy. From 8 March, the Italian authorities extended the area of isolation to cover the whole of the Lombardy region and the provinces of Modena, Parma, Piacenza, Reggio Emilia and Rimini (all in Emilia Romagna); Pesaro e Urbino (in Marche); Venezia and Padova (in Veneto); Asti and Alessandria (in Piemonte). The advice will be regularly reviewed and may be changed depending on how the fast-changing coronavirus situation evolves. Also see our travel information regarding Coronavirus.
