A Photo Tour of Untouched Molise

Still untouched, and unjustly overlooked, Molise, in southern Italy, is a mostly mountainous region that includes a stretch of coastline, with hills descending toward the Adriatic Sea. It includes part of the Abruzzo National Park in the Apennine Mountains, a paradise for nature lovers. The regional capital, Campobasso, is known for the Monforte Castle, located on a mountain, and for its Romanesque churches. To the north is the archaeological area of Pietrabbondante with an ancient theater and a Samnite temple.

All of it interspersed with excellent food and wine traditions.

Here’s a photo tour of Molise to help you plan your next off-the-beaten-path Italy trip.
