Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

Camping Aquarius is a good base from which to explore the Basilicata region including its extensive archaeological past. The National Archaeological Museum of Siritide is a short drive away and covers Greek life on the peninsula throughout the centuries; you can also visit the Temple of Hera and the National Museum of Metaponto.
The 'cave city' of Matera a short drive away is famous for its stone houses carved out from caves and cliffs. Wander down the small labyrinthine streets of Sasso Barisano and Sasso Caveoso and stop by the numerous cave churches, excavated by Basilian monks. Nearby, you can also visit the small villages of Craco (a ghost town), Montalbano Jonico with its stunning views and Valsinni with its handsome castle.
Pantano di Policoro Natural Reserve and Pollino National Park are also popular for long walks and for cycling.
