Walk Details
Monte Vairano, which at the highest point reaches 998 meters, is located between Campobasso and Busso.

It has a high biodiversity level, almost the whole area is covered by dense coppice-like vegetation and with some reforested areas that constitute a botanical complex of high value. You can find the downy oak, the farnetto, the flowering ash, the hornbeam, the chestnut, the juniper; the thorny oak is also present.

This area, according to a good part of the academic world, is the capital of the Samnites, the mythological city of Aquilonia.
