Lose yourself in a land rich with tradition and natural treasures: Molise, a small region in central southern Italy, between the Apennines and the Adriatic Sea, is a constant surprise.
Today the folk costumes, customs, and ancient crafts that have been lost in other parts of Italy live on here. One of the most famous examples here is linked to the presence of the “tratturi” (tracks), that is, roads used by shepherds and intertwined to transhumance, "green highways" in nature linking places and herds of animals from ancient times. The connections are so important that they have contributed to the emergence of many towns in Molise, including Campobasso.
Numerous historical and archaeological remains are found in the region, from the monuments of Isernia to the ancient crafts of Agnone and Scapoli, the land of bagpipes. Don't miss the small villages, and those who love the sea will find beautiful sandy beaches and clear water along the coast at Termoli and Campomarino. There are interesting tour routes among castles and abbeys.
One of the best known ski resorts in central southern Italy is also found here: Campitello Matese. Here you can practice hiking and mountain biking in the National Park of Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise, and in the WWF Guardiaregia Campochiaro Reserve.
Taste the local wines and numerous local products, such as truffles from Isernia and the white truffle of San Pietro Avellana, where there is also a fair dedicated to it. Don't miss the chance to attend some of the area’s festivals and dive into the heart of the region; the candlelight vigil in traditional costume Agnone, Ndocciata, the Lamb Festival in Capracotta, and Pezzata.
