“A Blast......of volcanic proportions. Do it!”
Reviewed September 18, 2010

Utterly amazing and a life affirming experience. I have just done it and am returning tomorrow with a colleague to do it again. The flight from Castelmezzano will put you on a superb high - Brilliant!

“the flight of my life!”
Reviewed August 21, 2010

This was the most amazing experience that I have ever had, and I did the Volo dell'Angelo to conquer my crippling fear of heights. I can't wait to return to Basilicata to do it again and spend some more time in that beautiful region of Italy.

“Flight of the Angel”
Reviewed September 13, 2008

Wow! This attraction connects the Dolomoti Lucane towns of Castelmezzano and Pietrapertosa with two cables where you are attached like a rocket and travel at 120 kmh over 1500 meters across a 400 meter deep gorge.

One cable goes each direction so a round trip requires two trips. Be aware that there is hiking required between the cables on the Castelmezzano side, almost 2 kilometers, mostly uphill.

A round trip flight is 30 euro. Open only during the summer season.
