The route starts from Piazza Brá towards the Basilica of San Zeno and then out of the city centre along a cycling path. Once in the Valpolicella area, the ride stretches among large vineyards to reach the village of Fumane, straith into the heart of the Valpolicella.
The ride offers the sight to several manor villas; however, none of them can compare the wonderful sixteenth-century Villa Della Torre. We will take some time to enjoy all the art and the history of the building. We will walk around the peristyle, on the edges of a fish farm, in the simple garden and among the vineyards that surround the building. Our guide will walk us around the interior halls.
The visit ends with a tasting of wines of the winery Allegrini, one of the most famous wine producers in Italy. Family Allegrini bought the villa to take it back to its ancient majesty, creating thus the perfect setting to spread its corporate image. While heading back to the city centre, we will follow the river Adige until the final destination.
