The last couple of months, we’ve traveled through Puglia, Calabria and Sicily via some of the most beautiful Flickr photos of southern Italy. Today the Southern Italy Snapshot series is heading slightly north into Basilicata.
Most travelers see Basilicata as they travel south (or east) from Campania into either Calabria or Puglia. The region has two provinces, Potenza on the west coast and Matera, home to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the same name to the east. Here are five beautiful photos from the region that will entice visitors to stop their car or get off of of the train next time they are passing through.
