Molise is a small region of amazing qualities. Land of untouched landscapes from the mountains to the sea, it is rich in art, history, culture, traditions, food and wine.
Wedged between the Adriatic, the Matese massif and the Mainarde chain, between the Trigno and Fortore rivers, the region borders the Adriatic Sea and Abruzzo to the north-east (those who stop on the Coast of Trabocchi in Abruzzo can continue for a few kilometers and visit the ancient village of Termoli), with Puglia to the south-east (Gargano and its beauties are close), the province of Frosinone to the west (those who visit the Abbey of Montecassino must take advantage to visit the Pandone Castle in Venafro and the French military cemetery) and the provinces of Caserta and Benevento to the south (from here you can continue to admire the archaeological area of Altilia – Sepinum).
Molise contains precious jewels to discover: paleolithic settlements, archaeological sites of the Samnite civilization and of the Roman era, medieval monuments, towers, castles and ancient villages, in a pure environment of suggestive beauty rich in protected areas and natural reserves. It is a small region capable of attracting and welcoming travelers in search of the rare, the curious and the hidden.
It is a millenary land, rich in ancient and authentic traditions, which are handed down and are still celebrated today in patronal feasts and festivals. Here, every holiday and anniversary is an opportunity for the community to meet again and repeat those rituals that convey their history and identity.
Strong nature, a rich artistic heritage preserved with care, a warm welcome and a genuine cuisine make Molise a region where even the most demanding visitor can marvel.
Mountains, Hills, Plains and Sea
Molise offers a unique tourist area: wide and unrestricted beaches with dunes and eucalyptus trees, small rest areas and equipped establishments, towns rich in history and villages full of charm.
The completely cultivated plains and hills change color as seasons and sowings alternate. Wheat, sunflowers, vegetables, olive groves and orchards: the countryside is rich in chromatic canvases painted by the work of the peasants. The perched villages and the lonely farmhouses remain the sentinels of a unique and extraordinary landscape. Here, you experience the privilege of peacefully traveling scenic roads and people-friendly towns. So little known and explored, Molise offers a mountain landscape of rare beauty. Trekking lovers can walk the countless paths and tracks of the ancient tratturi, while fans of extreme sports explore the deepest canyons in Europe. Even rivers, for long stretches, are passable by canoe. An interesting fact: there are six Canadian canoe instructors in Italy, and all whom reside in Molise.
The Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise National Park includes the enchanting villages of Pizzone, Castel San Vincenzo, Rocchetta al Volturno, Filignano and Scapoli, and is one of the oldest and largest Italian National Parks which has become a paradise of biodiversity and a model of extraordinary nature conservation. Do not miss a visit to other protected areas, such as the MaB Reserve of Collemeluccio – Montedimezzo, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the WWF Oasis of Guardiaregia with its spectacular karst phenomena, the deepest abysses in Europe.
