Molise is Italy’s newest region and arguably one of its least well-known regions. Situated in Southern Italy, it’s also the second smallest region in the country. Until 1963 it was actually part of the region of Abruzzi e Molise but the region then split and Abruzzo and Molise went their separate ways. Abruzzo still borders the region to the North whilst to the East lies Puglia, Campania to the South and Lazio to the West. Molise can boast both beautiful rural and mountainous landscapes as well as stunning beaches since it lies on the Adriatic Coast, with 22 miles of sandy coastline to be enjoyed and discovered. It is split into two provinces – Campobasso and Isernia.
The region offers holidaymakers a plethora of hidden gems to discover. Museums, areas of incredible archaeological importance, castles, churches and theatres…. All deserve a visit to truly discover the history and the ancient culture of this land. There is no doubt that Molise is certainly where you’ll enjoy an authentic taste of Italy.
