Located in Provence, Marseille, on the Mediterranean coastline is a top location for rock climbing. On the coast, the beautiful Calanques offer dolomite, limestone and carbonate strata to climb on while overlooking the gorgeous blue sea. To the east, the Sainte Baume mountains are another awe-inspiring option where you can also find Magadelene’s Grotto. And to the north, Mont Sainte Victoire is a limestone mountain ridge that inspires many a rock climber, so beautiful that it also inspired Paul Cezanne.
With over 300 days of sunshine, and winter lows rounding 4°C, Marseille is privileged in terms of its climate.
You can travel by plane or train.
