  • the city is beautiful, the story of its abandonment is great, very nice to visit, admire these buildings partly destroyed by various landslides, and have the pleasure to walk about in the middle. The price for a visit of about an hour of 10 euros per person seems greatly exaggerated. They say that tourists don't go there.

  • My boyfriend and I visited Craco today (18 October 2016) for the first time. We were fortunate in that we didn't know that visits were tours and we were able to attend the last visit of the day. What can we say? The village is charming and very impressive. A strong sense of melancholy pervades us during our visit, it is a very special and beautiful yet very melancholy. It's a shame to think that unless urgent and necessary maintenance interventions are made, it is a heritage that is going to be soon. A special thanks to Vincenzo who was our guide and escorted us all along the way, telling us the story of Craco and answering our questions. For your information: the cost of a ticket is 10 euros per person, it is not possible to access the Craco without a guide and it is advisable to inquire in advance regarding the timetable of visits. Before beginning the path to each one is given a protective helmet with attached toilet scrub Cap. It's definitely a place to visit, we hope that sooner or later they found the funds to keep it and care for it because it would be a shame and sorrow too great to see it disappear!
