Suspended between the Tyrrhenian and Ionian seas, the Italian region of Calabria and its neighbour Basilicata promise picturesque villages, lunar plateaus, rugged coastline and mountain lakes. But perhaps the most inviting element of Calabria and Basilicata holidays is the warmth and kindness of the locals, and their pride in safeguarding the region’s customs and traditions. This is a place to immerse yourself in an off-the-beaten-track Italy, whether that means sipping coffee in Matera’s Piazza del Sedile or letting locals guide you through tiny villages before an afternoon dip in Maratea’s enchanting sea caves.
Abundant natural parks and intriguing historic sites are the finishing touch on a truly seductive Italy full of sunshine and authenticity.
