Basilicata is probably one of the least known regions of Italy. Only a very small part of this green, mountainous and sparsely populated region borders the Tyrrhenian Sea. That particular piece is truly of fabulous beauty. One of the most characteristic towns is Maratea. The small port (Maratea Inferiore) lies at the foot of the old center (Maratea Superiore). Its typical streets, where local products are for sale, make you feel like you're in another world. From the top of Monte Biagio, high above the coast, you have a magnificent view of the sea. Only the clock of the picturesque little church proves that time has not stood still....
