Valpolicella is a territory full of surprising cultural attractions: from the fruit-scented valleys dotted with ancient parish churches and sixteenth-century villas, to the terraced hills where vineyards and olive trees stretch as far as the eye can see, to the beech forests rich in waterfalls and alpine meadows. The region is rich in nature and food and wine, just half an hour’s drive from Verona.
To reach Valpolicella by bus, from Verona there are some public transport lines such as 102, 103 and 107 (for detailed information www.atv.verona.it/orari_linee_bus_extraurbani). People traveling by train will stop at the Domegliara – Sant’Ambrogio di Valpolicella station, where only regional and fast regional trains can stop.
