DAY 3

Climb + Swim

Climbing all day is super fun, but the view from the top might have made you wonder how' the sea in this part of the island. Our answer might be biased, that's why you will get to tell it yourself. After another full day of climbing, jump into the water and chill out your muscles, they deserve it!

Sicily, Italy

Sicily is an actual living paradise for climbers.

Sicily is an actual living paradise for climbers. There are a lot of beautiful crags, and the rock quality is extraordinary. Nature is still untouched, with the Mediterranean sea and golden tufas as protagonists. On top of that, every month of the year can be the optimal one to climb: from the summer period - in which it is awesome to climb at the rock's shadow and refresh in the sea after - to the winter one, with its traditional mild and super pleasant climate.
