FAQs: Hiking in Molise

What should I know about Hiking Molise?

Located in southeastern Italy, Molise is a mostly mountainous region, which turns into hilly highlands as it approaches the short, 35 kilometer, stretch of coastline.

This special geography makes the region an excellent place for hiking. There are great places to do so throughout. Campobasso, the regional capital, is a particularly popular spot both because it is easy to get to and because of their proximity to various hiking routes of varying difficulty in the Matese mountains.
Roccamandolfi, Campitello Matese or Pizzone are also favoured hiking spots due to their proximity to great trails also with astounding views.
The coastal city of Termoli also has plenty of scenic hiking opportunities available, albeit slightly more urban in nature.
