I had so much fun, Franco is a very experienced and knowlegeable guide and I loved the challenges he gave me the option to pursue. No pressure, no fear, and maybe next time I will be able to sport lead on limestone. Beautiful location and views!

Climbing around Portovenere, 5 Terre

Really great climbing experience near Cinque Terre. The location was beautiful and our guide was fantastic. 1/2 of our group was experienced and 1/2 was not. Our guide made sure to find an area to accommodate everyone's abilities. Would highly recommend this experience!

Climbing around Portovenere, 5 Terre

I got to spend two amazing days climbing on two of the most beautiful climbing places you could think of. The guides were fantastic! Everything was well prepared, they took good care of everything and everyone, making sure we all felt safe and satisfied at all times. So if you want to start climbing as a beginner in one of the top 20 climbing spots of the world, or if you already have climbing experience and simply want to improve your technique or skills. Or if you’re already an experienced climber and you simply are looking for super professional climbing partners, this is what you have to go for! I feel like I made friends and will definitely come back next year to climb again with these lovely guys 🏼🏼🏼

Climbing around Portovenere, 5 Terre

This was an incredible experience!!! Our guide Fabio, president of the Tuscan Rock Climbing Federation, took us throughout the beautiful Muzzerone. His 35 years of experience definitely showed. He was wise, courteous, and knowledgable. The climbing itself was some of the best we've encountered: the rock faces were gorgeous (nice and gritty, easy to grip) and the views of the Mediterranean were spectacular. Highly highly recommend.

Climbing around Portovenere, 5 Terre

Fabio and Valeria were our guides on the day. We were a family with kids aged between 10 and 14years old. Fabio was very safety conscious and passionate about the sport. Very friendly and we felt like a day out with friends. The climbing spot was amazing. Great view, nice rocks.

Climbing around Portovenere, 5 Terre

Our guide, Cris (Roberto's colleague), was very professional and easy going. He made us feel very comfortable. It was clear safety was a priority. We did a variety of climbs that were great for my sister (beginner) and myself (intermediate). So fun and a great way to see the views in a unique way!
