After meeting your guide in the center of Verona in the morning, get outfitted with your bike and helmet. Once ready, pedal away, heading out of Verona and straight for the countryside. Once in Valpolicella, marvel at the grape vine-clad hills and the general beauty of the place. Valpolicella is well known for its wine production, ranking just after Tuscany's Chianti wine region in total Italian Denominazione di Origine Controllata (DOC) wine production.
Ride along the country roads enjoying the views and the fresh air until you reach the winery. Step inside and get ready to sample some wine. Learn here about what the chief tasting profiles are for Valpolicella wine as well as about the winemaking heritage from the region. And then sip something quite different, the more robust Amarone wine.
When the tastings are finished, pedal on your bicycle back to the center of Verona. The total bicycling distance: 12 miles (20 kilometers). This is an easy bike ride.
