Potenza Italy

Yesterday we spoke about Castellabate and Agropoli. Today we will look at Potenza. Potenza is a city high in the mountains north-east of Agropoli and east of Salerno on the RA5 autostrada. From Rome you take the A1 south to Naples then the A3 south to the RA5 (east). It is in the Basilicata region of Italy.

Potenza Center

Like most Italian towns it is a fun walk around. You can observe life and Italians being themselves. The center has a piazza with restaurants and bars. Step back in time and enjoy this beautiful city. This is a great place to stay a night or two or an easy ride from Naples or Salerno.
