Isolated among the Adige valley, the Mounts Lessini and Valdagno, the Lessinia territory is not crossed by major roads and it’s not very known. It is a hilly area, which rises gradually from the plain of Verona up to almost 2000 meters in the Mounts Lessini, which border it to the north.
It presents a wide variety of landscapes: from the plains where the Adige flows lazily, to the intensively cultivated hills of Valpolicella (famous for its excellent wine), to the mountains with alpine pastures and forests of beech and fir.
The proposed route of about 120 km, can be easily done by bike in a day but it is worth to dedicate a second day to visit Verona, which is surprising for its historical center so well preserved, with splendid churches and buildings.
The route starts from Verona, in plains, and gradually climbs the hills and then the mountains in the north up to the Lessinia Regional Park.
Due to the length of the path, you should take with you something to drink and to eat.
