  • Beautiful landscapes, tasty food and charming villages. And, a great fun for drivers with the right ride.
  • In addition to the bigger the better! Breathtaking, unspoiled and spectacular villages. Council the crest of infinity, the plans of Pollino and the garden of the gods. Good adventure!

  • With its peaks and green and deep valleys is an unforgettable spectacle that takes your breath away ... To visit in all seasons but for me it is beautiful in the spring. The food then is high quality: cheeses, breads in a wood oven, cold meats and fine wines. Still tied to traditions and lie together genuineness and moderately priced.
