The city was founded before the 8th century as a garrison town. It is famous for its craftsmanship in producing steel blades, and has a population of around 52,000. The name Campobasso means, literally, "Lowfield." But don't be fooled by the name, as the city is in the mountains with an elevation of 868 meters, and can actually be quite cold in the winter. In Campobasso there is a high rate of eastern Europeans: Albanians, Croats, Romanians, etc., forming their own language; the Molisan Croatian and Arbereshe.
Campobasso's weather can be extreme, in July the Max. is 38 degrees, and in January it's -9 degrees. So be prepared for whatever month you'll visit Campobasso.
Regular train service connects this Italian regional capital with the slightly-better-known national capital, Rome.
Campobasso has many nice places to see and visit, castles, churches, ancient palazzis, etc. In fact, it is the unknown side of Italy, out of the hordes of tourists hunting Italy's secrets.
There are lots of churches around the old borgo, it is half the fun to get lost there;
