Italy Basilicata

Jump to last reply

I am of Lucanian ancestry. My grandparents came from Roccanova,
Potenza in early 1900's. My grandmother was born in Sant' Archangelo.
Does anyone in this forum know this area? Has anyone been to Potenza?

I am trying to plan a trip to Italy this April with my eldest son. Basilicata is
our priority..to visit the land of my grandparents and to visit Matera.
I need help making an itinerary. ...suggestions on where to go, where to base
ourselves...how for many days..

We have 2 weeks in Italy. We will have a car.
I would also like to spend 4-5 days in Umbria and maybe visit the Marche and northern Puglia..

Does anyone have suggestions?

Thank you!
