Farther south, in Tuscany, Monte Forato offers an easy one-day via ferrata that is picturesque and perfect for both beginners as well as families.

On the island of mountainous island Sardinia, there are also plenty of other via ferrata options. The via ferrata del Cabirol on Cape Caccia provides simply stunning views out over the sea, while farther inland, via ferrata Giorre provides more great views out over the middle of the island.

On the eatsern side of the boot, the Apennines also provide some more low-key climbing options, perfect for getting some great views and avoiding the crowds.

This was our first time doing via ferrata and to be honest I was a bit worried as I\'ve never done something like this before. We\'ve been lead by Ethienne who was very knowledgeable, very kind and very helpful, sharing information and skills to help us do it the right way. The climb was steep, but they do different ones and I can honestly say this was one of the best things I have ever done! I would definately recommend this experience to anyone. We\'ve quickly realised on the day there was no way we could have done this on our own and the support and encouragement and knowledge sharing was everything we have hoped for!

Top of the world, literally!! We enjoyed our experience from start to end to say the least. Etienne was very personable, experienced and tailored our climb for the group. We felt safe and comfortable with our guide as he was a certified mountain guide and knows the Dolomites like the back of his hand. This was the highlight of our trip! Thank you!

I absolutely loved this tour with Renato, he is amazing! Can\'t believe he\'s been hiking and climbing Dolomites for 50 years. He was so fit, kind, funny, informative and a real pleasure to be around. Definitely will recommend this to all of our friends
