The town was built by the ancient Greek to defend Sibari from the growth of Taranto. A 1 km stretch of beach with white powdery sand is a further tourist attraction.
Metaponto is located by the Ionian Coast on the road linking Potenza and Matera with Taranto. It is composed by the main village and Metaponto Lido, the beach area. Between them there are located the ruins of Metapontum and the railway station.
