Caves, beaches and more in Basilicata, Italy’s secret southern region

Home > Blog > Basilicata 3rd place to visit for the NY Times

This is a chance to visit Italy’s southern region before the world catches on. Between the heel that is Puglia and the toe that is Calabria, you will find Basilicata, the arch of Italy’s foot.

Despite a storied and ancient past, the region has been overlooked in modern times. Easily Italy’s best-kept secret, Basilicata is revered for beautiful beaches, ancient towns and a dearth of organized crime.

In 2019, the town of Matera, a Unesco site, will host the European Capital of Culture. It is also known for its ancient caves – once used for livestock , later as primitive homes, and today, as private residences and hipster, beautifully restored, Flintstone-esque hotels. But for now at least, the secret is still safe.
