From Verona to Rocca del Garda
Among vines and olive trees on the eastern bank of Lake Garda
From Verona to Lake Garda along cycling paths and quiet roads to enjoy the hill landscape with vineyards and olive trees and the lake from the top of the Rocca del Garda.
The tour starts from Verona’s city centre and develops west, towards Lake Garda. We will ride to Garda’s hinterland on cycling paths along some canals. Once there, we will enter the area of Garda’s drumlin hills, where the land is covered with vines, olive trees and rows of cypresses to refine the landscape.
We will gasp when we finally get to see the blue mass that extends at the feet of the hill.
We will ride on gravel roads and, before heading down to the lake, we will take a short walk to enjoy the lake shores of Garda and Bardolino from the Rocca del Garda, a unique and privileged panoramic place that offers a wide view till the other end of the lake.
We will leave the silent hills behind to reach Garda on quiet roads; there we will meet the tourist crowd walking by the lake or relaxing in the cafes and restaurants of the place. We will then surely deserve a sweet break in one of the many handmade ice cream shops and then visit the place and its nice buildings and shops of all kinds. We will then head to Bardolino along the shore, if the number of pedestrian tourists sharing the path allows it. A fast scheduled bus will take us back to Verona either from Garda or Bardolino.
