The historic and lively city of Verona is surrounded by areas of great interest: the Lessinia Mountains (home to the ancient Cimbri people), suited to yearround sports; Soave and its rolling hills, blanketed by vineyards; the Valpolicella, home to historic villas and exceptional red wines; the Veronese plain, with its castles and rural traditions; and a 50-kilometer stretch of Lake Garda known as the Riviera of the Olives.
