INDOOR CLIMBING GYMS IN ITALY

 

There are not many super gyms like you find in the US (due to the amount of rock outside and the ability to climb year round), but there are several good indoor climbing and bouldering gyms to visit during your travel. 

VIE FERRATE IN THE DOLOMITES

Mountain trails and easy climbing routes  in the Dolomites that have been equipped with fixed safety cables, steel ladders, pegs, and even bridges for experienced hikers to enjoy some of the areas that once were open only to climbers. 

MOUNTAIN HUTS AND RIFUGIO'S 

Throughout the Italian mountain chains there are small huts that provide simple lodging, food, water, and act as emergency support in the event of accidents.  There very little open camping allowed so the mountains huts have become a necessity for multi-day hikes.
