Territory

Valpolicella is a hilly area, embraced by the river Adige and closed to the north by the foothills of the Lessinia mountains. Its wines, such as the Valpolicella Classico, Recioto and Amarone, together with its olive oil, cherries and marble, have made it famous all over the world. In the midst of the gentle hills there are magnificent country villas and some interesting churches, some of which are Romanesque, such as the churches of San Floriano and San Giorgio. During the summer some of the churches and villas are open to the public, with classical music concert and theatrical events. The Molina park, with its impressive waterfalls, the Veja natural bridge and the Lessinia Park are of considerable naturalistic interest.
