DREAM OF ITALY
Basilicata with Francis Ford Coppola

 

The small Italian region of Basilicata is located in the “in-step” of the Italian boot. Basilicata is the most mountainous region in Italy with nearly 50% of its territory covered by mountains, with the rest of the area nearly fully covered in hills. Although Basilicata has less than 10 miles of coastline on the Mediterranean Sea, that coastline is one of its best-kept secrets and the seaside town of Maratea could give anywhere in the Amalfi Coast a run for its money in the beauty department. The most famous site in Basilicata is the sassi (caves) of Matera which were declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
