Campobsso

Cities and Towns in Abruzzo and Molise

Campobasso, the principal city of Italy's Molise region, is the synthesis of two historic identities: the picturesque medieval center with its Monforte Castle, and the 19th century town inspired by the idea of the garden city. Thus, narrow streets, twisting stairways, courtyards and ancient portals alternate with green areas, large open squares, gardens and fountains.

Monforte Castle, dating back to 1459, dominates the historic center of the town, its dark, sturdy fortified walls expressing the defensive rather than residential purpose for which the building was first erected. The Church of SS. Trinità, which dates back to 1504, became the Cathedral of Campobasso in the 20th century. The building, with three naves and striking neoclassical facade is, without doubt, the most significant ecclesiastical edifice in the town.

Located right in the heart of Campobasso, the town park Villa De Capoa is a meticulously kept classical-style garden featuring shady, tree lined avenues, ornamental hedges and secret corners. Palazzo del Municipio and the Banca d'Italia are fine examples of 20th century urban architecture. The Palazzo del Municipio houses a statue of San Giorgio, patron saint of the city. A number of valuable artworks depicting the history of Molise hang in the salons of the Banca d'Italia.

The Sagra dei Misteri is the region's most important religious festival, when, during the Corpus Domini, the "Misteri", a series of curious wooden contraptions, are paraded through the town on the shoulders of the faithful.

Client Testimonials

Dear Guiseppe and Jesse,
We just returned from our most wonderful vacation to Italy and wanted to first thank you for putting together such a wonderful trip, and second to provide some feedback for the future.

Hotels
1. Hotel Sovestro in San Gimignano was wonderful. The staff were very friendly and helpful and made the first portion of our journey very stress free. They made us feel like we were part of their family. I would recommend it to anyone and would specifically ask for it if we were to make a return visit.

2. Hotel La Baia in Monterosso was nice and it's location was very good especially for us older folks humping luggage from/to the train station.

3. Hotel Lucchesi in Florence- what can I say expect FANTASTIC. The rooftop view at sunset is well worth it. Again very friendly and helpful staff. Would recommend it to everyone.

Wine Tour
Money well spent. We had a great time overall. The driver Mario was OUTSTANDING. He had lots of local knowledge as well as about winemaking. USE HIM AGAIN!!!

The various wineries we visited on tour:
Altesino- fantastic and they were not cheap on their pouring. Great experience.
Azienda Agricola Patrizia Cencion Sloaria- Again a great tour by one of the owner's daughters. We felt like we were the only thing on their mind although there were other customers there. A great way to complete the day.

Again we had a fantastic time and are very appreciative of everything you booked for us. We wish you continued success and if our travels should bring us back to Italy, we know who to call.
