The Rice Farms of the Veronese Plain

Isola della Scala - Chiesa della Bastia
The Veronese Plain covers a wide area, south of the city, characterized by large rice plantations, churches, historic residences, and castles.  It is an internationally recognized marshland oasis.  One of the many possible discovery routes in the area begins in Isola della Scala, the most important center for Vialone Nano rice cultivation.  A visit to a local riseria, or rice farm, educates the visitor on the seasonal cycle of this grain, the importance of local springs in its cultivation, and ancient and modern methods of working and husking the rice.  All restaurants and several of the riseria in the area offer tasting menus, based on the local crop.
For history lovers, the afternoon can be spent near the Church of the Bastia, the Scaliger bridge, the Bevilacqua Castle, and the Centro Museale of Legnago, a local museum where important prehistoric remains can be viewed.
Along the way, nature lovers can stop at the Palude del Brusà or Busatello marshlands, home to many bird species.
