Metaponto is one of the oldest and most important centers in Basilicata. In fact, this village was one of the first cities built by the ancient Greeks when they began colonizing southern Italy around the 7th century BC. Situated on the Ionian coast between the Bradano and Basento rivers, Metaponto (which in Greek means precisely “between two rivers”) was for centuries a symbol of Hellenic culture, and signs of the grandeur of its past are still alive today. Several archaeological sites are located within the territory, among which the Archaeological Park of Apollonius Lycius and the so-called Palatine Tables certainly stand out. The National Archaeological Museum of Metaponto is a must-see if you want to learn more about the history of this ancient city.
