Climbing Featured in
This area is famous for its variety of climbing routes, suitable for both experienced climbers and beginners. The rocks are located close to the seashore—it feels like you are hanging right over the water sometimes. Most climbing spots here are truly spectacular and easily accessible at the same time.
The closest to Monaco and most popular climbing spot is La Turbie. You can get a spectacular view of the city of Monte-Carlo when you climb La Turbie with its Grande Face—probably the most interesting section of the cliff. It has around 40 routes for climbers with various levels of complexity.
Other climbers' destinations in the vicinity of Monaco include Gorbio, Peillon, and La Trinite. Altogether, there are hundreds of routes, ranging from simple to complicated. Some popular climbing locations like Baou de Saint-Jeanet and Gorge du Loup are set a bit further from Monaco but are also worthy of checking if you're a keen climber.
Climbing is possible all year when the weather is favourable. The best season, for La Turbie in particular, is spring and autumn for the best conditions.
