How illustrious was your noble district

The Lucania, today’s Basilicata, is located in southern Italy, enclosed between Campania and Calabria, overlooking the Tyrrhenian sea to the west with Gulf of Policastro which has high and jagged coasts and to the east on the Ionian Sea with the two well-known localities of Metaponto and Policoro, which instead offer wide beaches of fine sand or pebbles.

Mainly mountainous, it offers snow in the four months of autumn-winter, sunny beaches and clear sea from spring to autumn. It is a land that offers different types of tourism: cultural, naturalistic, sporting and adventurous.
