Discovering Basilicata by motorcycle means venturing from coast to coast between Potenza and Matera, exploring the splendors of southern Italy. Book at least a weekend for this gastronomic and oenological experience through places steeped in history and cinematic landscapes. Start in Matera, the UNESCO-listed town of the Sassi, before heading to Craco, an abandoned but inspiring village used as a set by Mel Gibson for "The Passion of the Christ". Continue on to Stigliano and its famous bridge, then be impressed by the grandeur of the Certosa di S. Lorenzo in Padula, a Baroque monument listed as a World Heritage Site. Rionero, at the foot of the Vulture volcano, offers an Aglianico tasting pause before reaching the fortified town of Melfi. The road to the Lucanian Dolomites reveals Castel Lagopesole and its castle. In Potenza, explore the medieval heart, cathedral and archaeological museum. The adventure continues with exhilarating twists and turns to Pietrapertosa, where a "flight" on a cable connects this town to Castelmezzano. Return to Matera to close the tour, with the chance to visit the iconic locations used in Gibson's film and explore troglodytic dwellings and rock churches, witnesses to Greek and Latin history.
