High-flying thrills

Scattered with majestic, centuries-old Turkey oaks, scented lime trees, wild pear and apple trees, the Gallipoli Cognato forest is one of the most beautiful of its kind in the whole region. The park is dominated by the stunning mountain range of the Lucanian Dolomites, jagged limestone peaks that seem to emerge from the sea. You can either explore this gorgeous and rich scenery by foot, across two of Italy’s most beautiful villages, Castelmezzano and Pietrapertosa, or travel across the gorge on the “Flight of the Angel”, an exciting zip-wire ride that stretches between the two villages. You will be actually flying in the air, suspended on a wire between two mountain-top towns.
