Molise is located just above the “ankle” of Italy’s boot and lies between the Apennine ridge and the Adriatic Sea.
In the limited area Molise covers, the geography ranges from mountain peaks inland down to hills closer to the coast which boasts sandy beaches surrounded by Mediterranean vegetation.
Main cities are Campobasso (regional capital) and Isernia.
Monti del Matese, where you can follow the old tratturi droving trails that join the pastures of Abruzzo with Puglia.
Termoli on the Adriatic coast is a fantastic summer holiday destination combining beach life with trademark shopping, old fishing traditions and historic drama.
The climate is continental typically with winters colds and warm summers. The snowy precipitations abound in the mountainous zones. The rains are scarce in the summer months. On the coast the climate is mild. April through October as the best months for visiting Molise. Summer months are ideal along the not so visited beautiful coast.
