A scry thought, flying from one mountain to the next, but absolutely amazing! I booked a couple jump but only one of us went, understandably as it was quite dfaunting at the very top, especially as when we went it was a little cloudy. If ot rains you cant jump, so try to pick a nice day. Amazing town, fantastic... More

Went with my two teenage boys and had an unforgettable ride across two large mountains. The mountains are approx 3k feet above sea level and you ride over a valley at about 1k feet. Parking is not easy and neither is the walk to the first departure area. The walk to the second departure area is also substantial. Free water... More

The nature: wild and dramatic place in a green hillside The town(s): untouched homes built in the rock, where only one street it is NOT a stair The atmosphere: magic, with the ancient castle ruins seem build in the sky The emotions: unforgettable experience flying for real over the valley The food: local and rustic like the land; delicious The...

This was something to see - quite amazing! We drove to Castelmazzano from a neighboring town of Calvello in the Basilicata region. The attraction "Flight of the Angel" is a ride from the small, medieval town of Castelmezzano to its neighbor, Pietrapertosa in a harness on a zip line. You glide back and forth between two very grand and scenic... More

I went today to do my "flight". It was hailing when we first arrived at Castelmezzano. They told me to wait to see if flight can happen later. We waited 40 minutes and the hail stopped but it was still sprinkling and there were tons of lightening! They told me "Okay. Flight go!" ARE YOU NUTS??!?!?! There is lightening everywhere!!... More

For 40 Euro you get two rides, a TO and a FROM. Zip line is located between two mountain villages, Castelmazzano and Pietrapertosa . I'm 76 years old, and even though the trek up the mountainside is arduous, you will find the ride one of the most awesome things you have ever done. You zip line over the valley at... More

Volo dell Angelo is not for the faint of heart nor is it for people who fear heights! It is absolutely out of this world!! It is extremely high, very fast and utterly thrilling! There is a bus that takes you part way up at Castelmezzano. The rest of the walk is steep and it takes about 20 minutes, but... More

The flight itself is fantastic. The haul up to the departure point in Castelmezzano is awful. I understand that the walk goes through a public area but there should be some way to transport people up there.
