Basilicata is perhaps the most unknown piece of Italy located between the heel and the soles of the Italian boot. This region is due to extensive deforestation empty and silent. The Lucani, as residents of Basilicata call themselves, live here not industry or tourism, but mainly from agriculture and animal husbandry. The wine and the olive oil culture are known throughout Italy and abroad. You can also find peperoncini in beautiful braids for the houses to hang drying. The Parco Nazionale del Pollino. This is a mountain chain of the southern Apennine, at the border between the regions of Basilicata and Calabria, in the heart of the Mediterranean area. It has the highest peaks of the South of Italy, which are covered with snow for most of the year, from November to May.

From its summits, more than 2200 meters of altitude above sea-level, westwards the Tyrrhenian coasts of Maratea, Praia a Mare, and Belvedere Marittimo, and eastwards the Ionian coast from Sibari to Metaponto. The walks that have been expelled are not that difficult. You have to watch out for the burning sun, wolves, golden eagles, wild cats that you can find on your path. At the top of Monte Dolcedorme. From here you see the mare Ionio, the Mare Tirreno, the Mare Adriatico, a huge piece of southern Italy and sometimes even Sicilia.
