An economy car is perfect for cruising through the lovely streets of Basilicata's cities such as Matera and Potenza. However, if your journey involves more rugged terrain of the region’s mountains, consider a more robust vehicle like an SUV.

Currency

Just like the rest of Italy, Basilicata uses the Euro (€). Most establishments accept cards but it's always wise to have some cash just in case.
