Travel and Tourism Information
Provinces: Potenza, Matera
A mountainous region between Apulia and Calabria which offers two coastlines: one in the center of the Gulf of Taranto in the Ionian Sea, and a smaller one on the Tyrrhenian Sea, with the renomated sea resort Maratea.
In the north, around Monte Vulture, a large extinct volcano, the area is heavily forested.
Many rivers flow down from the southern Appennines into the Gulf of Taranto, irrigating the fertile coastal plain behind Metaponto.
