A TRIP AROUND VERONA’S HILLS

written by Bridget Brackett

Ostuni città bianca

The last time I visited Verona I have been in fact totally enraptured by the beauty of the landscapes, some near the lake, some next to the mountains and other near the city: the hills of Verona are on different areas of the beautiful Veneto province.

If you rent a car or a motorcycle from Verona it takes you only a few minutes to reach the green hills just outside the town and dedicate yourself to a beautiful trip between Veneto wineries and farms, sumptuous villas, castles and precious archaeological sites of Roman time featuring the territory surrounding Verona, which is rich in treasures and jewels yet to be discovered.

I left Verona not too early in the morning and stopped for lunch in one of the dozens of farms in the Valpolicella area, where I enjoyed some good typical Venetian food and had a delicious tasty red wine produced locally.

After a tour in the afternoon on the shores of Lake Garda, where I went to the beach in Peschiera del Garda, I returned to Verona in the evening, where I attended a fully italian rock concert in the evocative setting of the Arena.
