GUIDED TOURS ALONG THE TRAILS OF MARATEA
Trekking itineraries in Maratea - three walking itineraries accompanied by Basilicata Hiking Guides trials from rural churches to the historical centre.
Guided itineraries along the paths that were once the main routes of the territory, and that are still used by shepherds.
All the itineraries let you admire the inseparable contrast between sea and mountains that always has a new, suggestive discovery for you to find.
FOR EVERY EXCURSION: we recommend wearing non-slip shoes, sportswear, sun hat and water.
