Sports climbing in Italy
Introduction
Napoleonica  1 2
Costiera  1 2
Rock climbing in Trieste goes back a long way: generations of climbers have sped out to the nearby hills immediately after work to enjoy the limestone delights of Napoleonica, Val Rosandra and Costiera, and many, like Emilio Comici, have left their mark for others to enjoy and test their skill.

One of the most famous crags near Trieste is the nearby Napoleonica; perched on a hill overlooking the city and its bay, this panorama is Italy's answer to Montecarlo.

Costiera is another small crag of considerable value: steep overhangs and fierce slabs combine above the water's edge to ensure a fantastic day out, before watching the sun go down and retreating to one of the many famous trattorie for a well-earned evening's meal.

If you are after a combination of tradition and relax, testpieces and trattorie, then come to Trieste. She won't disappoint.
