Fumane and Villa della Torre
The Villa della Torre and the Amarone of the Winery Allegrini
Easy path through the wide vineyards of the Valpolicella and a visit to the sixteenth-century Villa Della Torre in Fumane. Wine tasting at the winery Allegrini, including the Amarone.
From Piazza Bra towards the Basilica of San Zeno and then out of the city centre along a cycling path. Once in the Valpolicella area, the ride stretches among large vineyards to reach the village of Fumane, in the heart of the Valpolicella.
The ride offers the sight of several manor villas; however, none of them can compare the wonderful sixteenth-century Villa Della Torre. We will take some time to enjoy all the art and the history that this ancient dwelling instils. We will walk around the peristyle, on the edges of a fish farm, in the simple garden and among the vineyards that surround the building. Our guide will walk us around the interior halls where we will admire the astonishing animal sculptures that decorate the huge fire-places.
The visit ends with a tasting of wines of the winery Allegrini, one of the most famous wine producers in Italy. Family Allegrini bought the villa to take it back to its ancient majesty, creating thus the perfect setting to spread its corporate image.
While heading back to the city centre, we will visit the Romanesque Pieve of San Floriano and then we will follow the river Adige till final destination.
