More Info

Italy’s rugged and diverse landscape combined with its superb summer climate makes the Mediterranean paradise an ideal rock climbing location. The country is pretty big by European standards, but getting here is no problem. Depending on where you are going, you’ll likely arrive somewhere different. To get to the Dolomites, flying into Milan is best. Arriving in Turin is ideal for a trip to the Aosta Valley. Meanwhile, arriving in Cagliari or Olbia works well for climbing in Sardinia.

Other popular rock climbing destinations in Italy include around Pisa and Genoa on the western coast; Trieste in the west, along the Slovenian border; Lake Como in the north; and Ancona, on the Adriatic Sea coastline. Bouldering is also quite popular in the north too.

 

 

 

Good to Know

 

What’s the weather like?

During the summer, northern Italy can get quite hot in the valleys, but become more mild with higher altitudes. Rain is uncommon during this season, though more frequent in the autumn. Sardinia has a Mediterranean climate and is generally warm all year long. The summers can be quite hot with a very strong sun. Rain is not uncommon in the spring.

How long should I stay?

This depends on what you would like to do and how much time you have to spare. Many guides offer a variety of trips from single-day excursions to week-long expeditions. Overall, a week or two is probably enough to thoroughly experience whichever location you choose to visit.

We had a great experience with Mr.Enrico Geremia for our via ferrata trip up Marmolada. Enrico was a friendly guide and did not compromise with any of the safety equipment. We felt secure all the while with Enrico. We would certainly recommend our friends who have plans to hike the Dolomites in the future to use this platform :)

Had a great trip with Arne, although we didn\'t do the North Ridge of the Badile due to lack of access after last year\'s rockfall. We had 3 days climbing in the Bregaglia completing multipitch rock routes on the Badile and the Cengalo. We did the classics Via Molten and  Spigolo Vinci respectively. Arne is a very professional guide of few words and we got on well and had a good time. We spent 3 days at the Gianetti hut before the weather turned and we spent time in the Val di Mello climbing a couple of granite classics.  The weather was marvellous as was the climbing and the scenery. Arne was, as you would expect, very knowledgeable and I always felt safe and in good hands. I had a great experience, and climbing with someone new was part of it. I would certainly consider contacting Arne again for further adventures.
