A unique, rich and generous land

With its gently rolling hills, just like the whole of the Pedemontana Veneta area, Valpolicella is a succession of little valleys, natural ups and downs that slope down towards the Verona plain.

The most northerly area is home to the Lessinia Regional Natural Park, characteristically wilder and unspoiled but full of tourist attractions, above all the majestic Veja Bridge at Sant’Anna d’Alfaedo, an limestone arch around 10 metres thick and 52 metres wide, with a stream flowing underneath .   If you are in the area, don't forget to visit the Molina Waterfalls and the Fumane Cave, one of the largest prehistoric archaeological sites in Europe.

The Valpolicella region is full of ancient oratories and old mansions that the nobles of centuries past chose to build in this enchanting area, where we can also find many Venetian villas today.

Above all, however, the Valpolicella region is famous the world over for its excellent wines: Valpolicella, Recioto, and the full-bodied Amarone.  The Valpolicella Wine Road allows you to sample the products of local wine growing tradition and  discover this beautiful and fascinating corner of the Verona foothills.
