Molise: Italy's Last Undiscovered Region

  1. 1. Molise: Italy’s Last Undiscovered Region monkeysandmountains.com /molise-italy Molise is the last undiscovered region in Italy. That is a bold statement to make but that’s according to Wikipedia. Undiscovered in general is difficult to find in Europe. It’s one of the things I miss most about being in Canada, where it’s not uncommon to spend an entire day in the mountains without seeing another soul. But that’s what you find in Molise. With one of the lowest population densities in all of Italy, solitude, wilderness, and heck even brown bears await you! Don’t worry… they’re friendly….and only found in selected areas…or so I hear! I traveled around Molise by train. Not just any train mind you, but a private train organiz ed through Molise Discovery Leisure Train Tour. SNAP! OK I kid, it’s actually very affordable with a 50 – 70km train ride costing €45 adult. You will be serenaded by costumed folk singers and served local home- made delicacies and espresso in the tiny doll- siz e cups that Italians love so much! It’s unlike any train ride I’ve ever been on. But without a doubt, the best part is what’s outside the train: Tr a i n tr a ve l i s a g r e a t wa y to e xp l o r e Mo l i s e , e s p e ci a l l y wh e n i t’s a p r i va te tr a i n a s we to o k!

Fortunately these activities can be organiz ed by Kolidur Travel Club who organiz es day, weekend and seven- day tours. And did I mention the medieval villages? Or the food? Stay tuned….
