Molise, pristine Italy

It's the least-known of Italy's regions. Much of the region seems to be struggling out of its past.

 

Over 2000 years ago, the Romans charged into the region, forcing the native Italic Samnite tribes to leave their small villages and live in roman formula-built settlements. Molise still has a scattering of low-key Roman ruins, most interestingly at Saepinum, Italy's most complete example of a Roman provincial town.

The brief stretch of the Molise coast is still less developed than others Italian coasts. Its only real town, Termoli, a fishing port and attractive resort, makes for a relaxing place. The beach is long and sandy, the modern town has browsable shops, and the old town, walled and guarded by a castle, an interesting cathedral.
