What to do in Valpolicella
Things to see and things to do, but mainly wine and food experience, Valpolicella is really a region that offers great emotions.
Our wine resort in Valpolicella is in an excellent position: very close to the center of Negrar, easily walk-reachable to visit it or to try the numerous trattoria, restaurants and pizzeria in the area, about 20 minutes from the Verona city and 45 minutes from Lake Garda, but also close to the main points of interest and attractions of the Verona area, such as the Veja bridge, the Molina waterfalls, the Prun quarries, the Tibetan bridge and the producers of Monte Veronese.
Here some things to see:
- The Molina Waterfall Park is a park which covers an area of 80,000 square meters in the valley of Molina in the municipality of Fumane.
- Meridiana Negrar: The monumental sundial that greets visitors arriving at Negrar is a sculpture / internationally important tool. About seven meters high with a diameter of five and a total weight of about 2000 kg, combines “contemporary” design to the “historicity” of science that encloses.
- Pieve di San Floriano: The Romanesque church of San Floriano is mostly a copy of the famous church of San Zeno in Verona.
- The Ponte di Veja, a natural arch 50 meters high resulting from the natural evolution of a cave.
- The Pojega Garden, near our cellar, this garden was built in 1783 by Luigi Trezza on commission from Count Antonio Rizzardi and represents a characteristic example of the Italian gardens. It extends over 54,000 square meters with theaters, green walls and several specimens of plants and flowers.
- La Lessinia: recommended visits to the Camposilvano còvolo and the Sphinx Valley, the Mille Oak cave, the Giazza forest, the centuries-old beech trees of Bosco Chiesanuova and Erbezzo. For those who just want to ski there are the municipalities very well equipped for the winter tourism of Bosco Chiesanuova, Malga S. Giorgio, Branchetto, Monte Tomba and Campofontana.
