Castelmezzano is one of the most emblematic villages of my region: La Basilicata. It's found between the Lucan Dolomites and it's a gorgeous place which I'd recommend to anyone. It's also pretty easy to get there: there's a scenic highway which takes you there and is even more exciting if you do it on two wheels instead of four!
There are lots of good lunch options in the area, from the farms themselves (20-25 €) to the village taverns (30€ at most). I’d suggest eating in the "Becco della Civetta," a quaint little inn which, while not cheap, has divine food from the region and amazing views.
