Have you ever heard of “Angel Flight”? No, it is not a story or an allegorical image, but a unique, tangible experience, an emotion that you can hardly try again.


It is literally a flight, both outward and return: you are safely tied by a special harness and attached to a steel cable of the length of 1.5 km that connects two villages Castelmezzano and Pietrapertosa in Basilicata.

The journey between the two flight stations, located in the Dolomiti Lucane, one of the most beautiful natural landscapes in Italy, takes place in about 80 seconds, touching the speed of 120 km per hour at 300 meters high.

Each flight takes you through the open space between these two municipalities, giving you a unique emotion and an unforgettable show.

You can live this emotion alone with the single flight, or share it with another person by choosing the flight in pairs, for a unique experience in Italy and, for the wild nature of the landscape, in the world.

“Now the Flight of the Angel is known throughout Italy and between the departure platforms there are people of any age and of many different nationalities. ” From 12 years you can fly accompanied by parents, while from 16 even alone. You can also decide to go from side to side as a couple. We had so many 80-year-olds who decided to do it, they were thrilled. The majority of visitors come from Puglia, Campania and Lazio, but many also come from Lombardy and Tuscany. Before the coronavirus emergency, the percentage of international arrivals was 10/12%. In this case most of the visitors came from the UK, Germany and Switzerland, says the administrator of the flight Caivano in an interview with Repubblica.

To complete the whole there is a tourist offer that is not limited to those 80 seconds of flight, continues Caivano: “What makes our structure unique is the opportunity to visit two villages in the same day, moving from one municipality to another thanks to the flight that, thanks to two lines, allows return trips“.

An incredible activity, perfect for spring and easily accessible from the Amalfi Coast, to give you a bit of adrenaline during your holiday relaxation.
