The area of Portovenere and the Palmaria Natural Park is a great place for climbing lovers. Indeed, these spots overlooking the sea are well-known and extremely popular worldwide. This is because of the variety of routes of different levels that they offer.

Another option is to go to Muzzerone, which offers amazing climbing and adventure trails starting directly from the sea. It's another great opportunity for you to climb in one of the most beautiful spots in Italy. You'll also get to enjoy the great weather in this area!

We can take beginners and/or more experienced climbers. We will adapt the itinerary and the difficulty depending on your level and what you wish to do. You can book us for one or more days and we guarantee that you'll have an unforgettable experience!

What’s included in the guided climbing day tour price?

The guiding service and the climbing equipment (also the personal one: helmet, harness, etc.) are included.

Where is the meeting point?

If you have a car, the meeting point will be at the crag directly. The crag will be selected based on your climbing experience, your wishes for this climbing day, and the weather. We usually go climbing in Muzzerone. It is a wonderful climbing spot, just above the sea, 15 minutes drive from La Spezia. It is suitable for all climbing levels.

If you don’t have a car, our guide can pick you up at the train station of La Spezia (https://goo.gl/maps/ZfgBDRwcPvg18z5Q7).

What should I bring with me?

Please bring a light-packed lunch with some water.

Also take a waterproof jacket, comfortable clothes, and shoes.

We’ll take care of bringing the climbing equipment.

How long are we going to climb for?

We usually start climbing at between 9.00 and 10.00 am, and we finish at between 4.00 and 5.00 pm.

Is it possible to climb multipitch routes in the 5 Terre?

Yes, in Muzzerone. There are some beautiful multi-pitch routes (from 5c to 7a) just above the sea.

Is it also possible to climb close to Florence?

Yes, there is a nice climbing crag near Florence in "Monsummano", with many single-pitch routes for all technical levels. To get there, you can take a train from Firenze SMN to Montecatini Centro. It takes about 50 minutes. Our mountain guide can pick you up at Montecatini train station. You’ll then drive together for 10 minutes to reach the climbing spot.

How many climbers maximum can join?

A guide can usually take a maximum of 5 climbers with him. If you are more than 5, another guide from our team will join.

I’m alone, can I join other climbers?

Unfortunately, no, we offer private guided climbing tours only.

Is it suitable for children?

Yes, of course, kids are welcome! The crag of Muzzerone, near Portovenere, is perfect for children and families.

Are you offering other outdoor/adventure activities in the area of the 5 Terre?

Yes sure! Please have a look at this page - https://www.explore-share.com/mountain-guide/prorock-outdoor-team/ - which lists the different activities we offer in the area (Liguria & Tuscany).

What happens if the weather is very/too hot?

If the weather is very hot (like in August for example), we can go to climbing spots where it's cooler: in Monte Lieto, in the Apuan Alps, near Forte dei Marmi, for example.

I need to book accommodation. Where would you recommend I stay?

We recommend that you stay in the villages of Le Grazie, Portovenere, Riomaggiore,

Fezzano, Monterosso, Vernazza or Manarola—all beautiful villages. The mountain guide can pick you up at your hotel there or at the La Spezia train station.

What people are saying about this trip



Great experience overall - we went to the Apuan alps where we were able to climb multiple routes with a fantastic view all with our guide Franco - very fun and memorable experience and would definitely recommend



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!



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 🏼🏼🏼



We had an incredible time climbing in Portovenere with the Prorock team! They were incredibly helpful in coaching and teaching us climbing techniques, while also allowing us to have so much fun climbing a ton of different routes. They were very familiar with the area and gave us recommendations on how to spend the rest of our day after our trip. Overall we had an incredible experience and hope to be back soon!



Jimmy from Prorock was an excellent guide! He was patient with us. He was also very safe and made us feel comfortable climbing outdoors! Thank you, Jimmy and Prorock, for the wonderful experience at Monsummano crag!
