Pisticci may not be on the must see list for visitors to this region of Italy but I think it should be. Charming little hilltop town with wonderful views over the surrounding area. We wandered all over Pisticci for several hours and were totally charmed by this little town. Probably not for the those who cannot traverse hills and stairs as it is very hilly with lots of ups and downs. We actually found a parking garage in this little town which was centrally located. Very surprising to see but very welcoming to find. The old church was beautiful to see and we were given a tour by the Priest. While we don't speak Italian and he did not speak English, he was very welcoming and showed us the manger scene in the lower level of the church. He also rang the small bell to show us how loud the bells could be. Very charming visit to a pretty little town.

A nice view point in the old part of Pisticci. Worth the short walk to look back on the town and local countryside

This is the truly historic part of this small town perched on a hill in Basilicata. Buildings date back hundreds of years. We have the opportunity to visit some residents in the Dirupo - modern amenities but basically living in homes of the past. Great insight into what a village was like long ago

My experience is quite personal, as Dirupo and Pisticci are related to my life. An amazing panorama, a vision of something mystical but at the same time abandoned and neglected. A piece of art that unfortunately is not famous nor valued. You really need to know someone or being a hard traveller for discovering place like this. For everyone that would like to see something amazing and at the same time special is highly suggested.
