Southern Italy takes visitors down less travelled paths, into a world of colourful traditions, inviting tables, splendid terrain and lazy beaches. The relatively unspoiled ‘Mezzogiorno’ area, named after the blazing Sun, includes the regions of Basilicata, Calabria, Molise, Campania, and Puglia. Basilicata’s landscape is marked by rugged hills and steep valleys strewn with small towns and charming villages, where the piquant cuisine is truly delightful.
From mystical waterfalls to tranquil lakes, you’ll love a cheeky paddle at these watering holes.
Forget fairy tales, real life is where it’s at with these swoon-worthy sites on the agenda.
Accessible only by boat or strenuous hike, these hostels fall far beyond the typical tourist's radar.
