The only place to climb in the Padova Province of the Veneto is in the Colli Euganei. The Euganei hills are located just south of the city of Padova. The rock is volcanic, and most of the climbing is closer to the Alpine style and requires good body control and technique.
There are three equipped rock climbing sites in the Padova Province; Teolo, Mt. Piro, and Monselice. The area worth visit is Rocca Pendice or Teolo, with over 350+ routes. The other two areas are nothing worth visiting unless you happen to be passing by and have no where else to go.
