Castel San Vincenzo in the Apennines, Molise.


Molise is the second smallest Italian region in land area and population after Aosta Valley. With merely 320,000 inhabitants, it is less populous than the nine largest Italian cities.

Made up mostled of forested mountains and hills, Molise is usually considered Italy's most remote region. It is also one of the least visited by tourists, a good place to avoid the crowds of Tuscany or Lazio.
