Basilicata, the most mountainous region in the south of Italy, boasts two separate coastlines and numerous places to visit, including secluded beaches and medieval hilltop towns. Over the centuries, the Greeks, French, Spanish, and Arabs invaded Basilicata. Each of these cultures left a deep mark on the area's culture and traditions, most visible in the region's Byzantine rock churches and fortified towns--as well as the numerous festivals throughout the year. Basilicata is known for combining a few local ingredients into delicate dishes. Make sure your itinerary includes exploring the region's small towns, where locals create several types of wheat pasta and offer a wide range of vegetable specialties. Basilicata is in Italy.
