This commercial site isn't pretty, and it can be frustrating to navigate, but it's worth browsing before your trip to Maratea.

Pro Loco Maratea "La Perla"
This site might be compared to a local Chamber of Commerce Web site. It's about tourism, but not really for tourists. Still, it does have an events calendar that may be useful, it has some attractive pictures, and you can translate with Google as needed.)

The municipal information here is primarily for residents, but you never know when you might want to call the police or adopt a dog. (If you don't read Italian, translate with Google.)
