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

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.
