Basilicata on the road

Due to the particular oroghraphy of the territory cycling tracks have different levels of difficulties ranging from low to high. Besides, these tracks have been set in such a way as to pass through the protected areas, the cultural, natural and historical centres of the region – from the Vulture Melfese to the Murgia Materana, from the Gallipoli Cognato and Small Lucanian Dolomites Park to Potenza, up to the Val D’Agri Park and Maratea.

So, ready, steady … go!!!
