Molise is a little region of central Italy, washed by the Adriatic sea. This region, despite being largely-undiscovered, offers a wide variety of appealing opportunities and richness, such as nature, history, art, century-old traditions and good food. A visit to the mountains or hills of Molise gives you that Eureka feeling of discovery, scored by the characteristic tratturi, a traditional seasonal migration of people and livestock from the pastures of Abruzzo to those of Apulia and viceversa.
Many narural parks and reserves protect plants and animals typical of this area, like in the the National Park of Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise. The two most important ski resorts, Campiello Matese and Capracotta, boasts an un-spoiled natural frame too.
Molise’s beaches are sandy, surrounded by a lush Mediterranean vegetation.
The history and culture of this region can be discovered visiting its archaeological sites, abbeys, small towns and countless castles.
Molise can be described with the title of Antonio Fogazzaro’s novel “old-fashioned world”, where customs and traditions survive, where handicrafts and the old professions that have disappeared elsewhere are still alive.
Molise is divided in two provinces: Campobasso (regional capital) and Isernia.
