Molise is one of the smallest of Italy’s regions and lies in the south of Italy on the ‘ankle’ of the boot. The landscape of Molise includes mountains, hills and a coastline on the Adriatic Sea. The region is sparsely populated. The capital city of Molise is Campobasso.
Molise is the newest Italian region, since it was established in 1963, when the region Abruzzi e Molise was split in two. It became effective only in 1970. The capital is the city of Campobasso. The region is located in South Italy bordered by Abruzzo to the north, Lazio to the west, Campania to the south, Apulia to the southeast and the Adriatic Sea to the east. The region is largely unspoilt and inland has mountains, the largest of which is the 8,202 ft, Monte Miletto, and hills whilst the coastal area offers 35km lovely, quiet sandy beaches, the southern Adriatic coast is considered to be one of Italy’s most beautiful stretches of coastline. The region comprises the provinces of Campobasso and Isernia and still relies heavily on agriculture and livestock raising.
