Enthusiasm for free climbing has been one of the main reasons for the rediscovery of Finale Ligure’s inland.
A few decades ago, tourism was concentrated on the coast until a group of mountain enthusiasts and expert climbers explored the neglected areas of the valleys and found mountains to climb.
Thanks to their efforts and a large number of cliffs, Finale Ligure has become one of the most famous resorts in Europe for free climbing.
In fact, there are 192 areas with 3,500 routes to cater for every level of difficulty!
The area also has many B&Bs and farms where climbers can stay just a few steps away from some of the most beautiful climbs!
