The famous wine-growing region to the north of Verona and east of Lake Garda is a most attractive destination. Reasons for this are its scenery as well as its culinary delights. This is where the fruity red wines, which bear the same name, are produced but also the Amarone and Recioto wines, which are highly appreciated by connoisseurs.
The pretty villages in the three valleys, which are nestled into the Lessinia mountain range in the north, offer everything needed for everyday life: schools, post offices, banks, food shops and excellent trattorias. Moreover, Verona is just a short drive away.
Famous wine-growing villages in the Valpolicella region are Sant Ambrogio, San Floriano, San Pietro in Cariano, Fumane and Negrar, to name just a few. Everywhere in this beautiful, hilly wine paradise you can find fantastic residential areas, almost always they are embedded in vineyards and offer breathtaking views.
