Description

In Italy, there are all types of climbing to be found. The country is full of possible destinations. An abundance of everything from sport climbing to long, alpine routes. In addition to a variety of climbing styles, are the various types of stone. Much of the climbing is on different types of limestone, however, beautiful granite can be found as well. Check it out, you won't be disappointed!

Getting There

There are a variety of major cities that can be flown into. Just pick the one closest to your selected climbing destination. At times is is better to fly into a nearby country (Austria, Germany) for quicker access to your destination. It also makes sense to check with your car insurance and credit card company regarding coverage of rental cars. Some will not cover cars rented in Italy, but will cover cars rented in other countries and driven in Italy.
