Sport and pristine nature in the heart of Molise
In the province of Campobasso, in the karstic heart of Molise, lies one of the best-equipped ski resorts in central and southern Italy. Campitello Matese, at an altitude of 1,450 metres, has 6 ski lifts and 14 slopes suitable for beginners and advanced skiers, totalling 40 kilometres. Visitors who enjoy cross-country skiing, freestyle skiing or bobsleighing can enjoy specially prepared slopes, while there are also snowshoeing trails perfect for the whole family.
Even without snow, Campitello Matese is a natural paradise where you can treat yourself to walks and hikes among woods, lakes, caves and meadows perfect to enjoy a Sunday picnic or to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. High-altitude cycling enthusiasts will love the CicloLago del Matese cycling park, which runs along the shores of the Matese lake. If you have plenty of energy, you can take on a climb to the summit of the Colle del Caprio mountain, which, at 1,850 metres, offers spectacular panoramic views: on clear days, you can make out the outline of Vesuvius.
We recommend stopping for a break at the Bosco di pietra, an area rich in tall beech trees that have grown among rocks and fossil deposits dating back to the Mesozoic Era.
