FLIGHT OF THE ANGEL
Il Volo dell’Angelo, or the Flight of the Angel, is one of Basilicata’s most exhilarating tourist attractions and is not for the faint-hearted!
The Flight of the Angel is a high-speed zip wire, offering unparalleled views as you fly between two mountain peaks over a stunning valley. Feel an adrenaline rush unlike any other as you travel at speeds of up to 120 km/h and heights of up to 1020 m suspended on a wire between the two mountain-top towns.
The flight has two lines, the first, known as the “San Martino” line, starts from Pietrapertosa (altitude 1020 m) and arrives in Castelmezzano (arrival altitude 859 m) after covering 1415 meters with the top speed of 110 km/h. The “Peschiera” line starts from Castelmezzano (altitude 1019 m) and arrives in Pietrapertosa (arrival altitude 888 m), covering 1452 meters with the top speed of 120 km/h.
