The vineyards of Valpolicella have been decorating the landscape of the Hills of Verona for centuries. Every year the secrets of the renowned winemaking traditions produce their much prized liquid gold - The Amarone.
This E-Bike tour, starting from Verona, leads to the discovery of the historic landscape of the Hills, which was once the inspiration for the world famous tragedy of Romeo and Juliet.
Starting from Verona's City center, the tour continues along the Adige river, the majestic city’s protective river. Along the glistening riverbanks, the nature and the landscape tell the story of this land among charming villages and views of the beautiful vineyards of Amarone.
In Villa Serego Alighieri, we raise a glass and toast tradition while the enthusiastic words of the expert guides the tasting. The fine notes and aromas of the excellent wine accompanied are a prelude to a sumptuous lunch: in the frescoed hall of Villa Quaranta, the taste buds crescendo in the dishes of the exclusive restaurant.
In the afternoon, cycling through the hills towards Lake Garda, thanks to the mild climate the landscape is enriched with olive groves. On the horizon, the fortified tower of the ancient castle signals the arrival in the Lake Garda village of Lazise, where among the elegant palaces and alleys of the center is time for a relaxing walk.
