Family Holiday in Maratea Summer 2012


Any advise for a regular Italian visitor, tho never to Basilicata for a Family , kids ( 4 & 7 ) catered for family hol last two weeks july in Maratea

Where to go , beaches etc ?

Heard Maratea is beautifull, less touristy , more italians, as prefer as am learning the Bella Lingua, and the usual destination of Tuscany can be a bit overun at this time with Northern Europeans, and obviously has not the best beaches.

thanks in advance

Hello Brian, I'm from Maratea and I'm glad you wanna come here instead of Tuscany :)

In my opinion, the best period to visit Maratea is in June and September, but even July is a good choise. There's not so traffic and the kind of tourism made in Maratea is not based on big numbers of tourists, but on the quality of the vacation.

I would ask you one thing... How do you imagine Maratea? :)

What do you espect from Maratea? What are you looking for? :)

I apologise for my English, I hope you'll understand me :)
