Valpolicella is the hilly area at the foot of the Veronese Pre-Alps, in the same province. The valley is bordered to the south by the River Adige, it is bordered to the east by the hills of Parona, Quinzano and Valpantena, while the north continues to the Lessini Mountains, the other half is sought after by mountain bikers. To the west is instead separated from the Val d’Adige, from the Pastello Mountain.
Valpolicella has always been a land especially renowned for its fine wines, from Amarone to Recioto, passing through the Valpolicella Classica, Superiore and Ripasso, it offers wonderful both from the naturalistic and cycle-touristic point of view, and from the food and wine point of view.
A path crossing the heart of Valpolicella, starting from the village of San Pietro in Cariano, passing through the characteristic vineyards, you reach the beautiful villa Pullè. From here to the village of Castelrotto where you can enjoy a beautiful view across the valley, you will then come by a little effort the village of Marano di Valpolicella where you will rest a little from the fatigue of the ascent. From here you will go back to the valley of Fumane, where thanks to wonderful downhill slopes you reach the homonymous village. Still a few of vineyards and the tour ends passing through the splendid Bure district and then reaching the starting point.
Soft and not particularly demanding path except for the climb to Marano faces with much calm and relaxation and therefore suitable for many bikers. A bit of familiarity with mountain biking is necessary. Average physical condition. Easy path.
