Molise is the smallest region of Italy after Valle d'Aosta. Out of 1.000 Italians, only 6 live in Molise. It is also one of the least densely populated areas as the local population moves from the countryside to the cities.
Molise doesn't have something that immediately comes to mind when you hear the name. No Colosseum, canals or Leaning Tower. Perhaps it also has to do with the fact that Molise is the youngest region of Italy. Until 1963, this area belonged to the region of Abruzzo e Molise.
Places of interest in Molise include the historic center of Campobassi, the archaeological zone of Sepino and the center and coast of Termoli with its typical fishing huts on stilts. Termoli is a beautiful place without mass tourism but with wide sandy beaches.
