Destination Verona and surroundings to welcome the summer in Italy
After Bassano del Grappa, we still stay in Veneto to suggest a new italian itinerary between taste, art and history, in Verona, in the city center and in its surroundings. Certainly the city of Verona itself, famous among other things for its splendid Arena, and for the tradition that has Juliet's house and its famous balcony to be found here, certainly deserves much more than a day to be better known. , but we leave to other moments a complete experience in the center of the city of Verona.
Vineyars of cantina Monte del Frà
Instead, we point outside the city, to recommend to all wine lovers as a first destination a winery in Sommacampagna, a town located between the city and Lake Garda, a few kilometers from both. This is the Monte del Frà winery, in the Custoza wine area, a white wine that thanks to its freshness and its mineral and fruity notes is suitable for the summer season and the hot temperatures that this month of June is giving us. The choice of Monte del Frà, which in addition to Custoza produces all the typical wines of this area of Verona, starting with Bardolino and Valpolicella, is motivated by its attention to wine tourism.
E-bike tours, wine yoga, picnics in the vineyard and guided tastings create a wide range of experiences that allow you to discover the excellent wines produced by the company, visit the vineyards and the cellar, get to know the area and taste local products.
In particular, for those who love movement, the e-bike tour on Lake Garda can be the experience not to be missed, with a sustainable route among the morainic hills of Custoza, through expanses of vineyards and tree-lined avenues, with stops in the areas of historical importance and the tasting of Veronese wines and flavors.

E-bike tour - Monte del Frà
Returning into the city of Verona, we now make a digression in the field of art, with the hope that more and more people will become passionate about the possibility of experiencing, within the same day or weekend, experiences that we know how to enrich our different sensibilities. The opportunity is offered to us by the recent renovation of the exhibition path of the Achille Forti Modern Art Gallery, which is located in the city center. You can admire masterpieces of the Italian nineteenth and twentieth centuries, referable to the most important artistic movements of the time, such as the Tuscan Macchiaioli, the Secessionists and the Divisionists, with great authors such as Telemaco Signorini, Felice Casorati and Gaetano Previati, with his splendid Maternity, loan exceptional from the Banco BPM collection.
For all information on access to the museum and the exhibition itinerary, the reference is the museum infos from Itinerarinellarte.it.

It should also be remembered that the exhibition “Tra Dante e Shakespeare. Il mito di Verona” can be visited in the same Gallery of Palazzo Forti in this period (more info), organized as part of the celebrations for the 700th anniversary of the birth of Dante Alighieri.
We leave the city again for the last destination of our itinerary between the city of Verona and its surroundings, to enter the Valpolicella and to climb among its hamlets in search of a bit of fresher air, up to 1000 meters above sea level We are thinking of Fumane, in the province of Verona, one of the most important localities in Valpolicella, which with its hamlets penetrates the Lessini mountains. Its territory can offer you truly different experiences, but all interesting and unique, starting with a tasting of the famous wines of Valpolicella (here is the Enoteca della Valpolicella), continuing in the Molina hamlet with the Molina waterfalls park, and again with the "Grotta di Fumane" or Solinas shelter, considered among the most important prehistoric sites in Europe for its long period of use (guided tours in this period may still be suspended), and with a visit to the local Botanical Museum .
To decide which route to follow in the Fumane area, the reference point we leave you is this place overview.

So this is our idea for the end of June, to discover some of the many treasures kept by Verona and its province; we hope you can find the right inspiration for your early summer weekend in Italy!
