Water springs and olive trees

Enjoy a scenic bike tour in Valpantena valley, through orchards, vineyards and water springs.
Have a guided visit to an olive oil mill / winery with included tasting.

This trip gives you an opportunity to explore the beautiful eastern area of Verona and you’ll learn all about the olive oil production and the different steps for oil extraction, directly from the family workers themselves. Starting from the Travel Agency located near the famous Arena, in Verona’s city centre, we cycle to the luxuriant Valpantena area via cycle tracks and dirt paths.

First we visit a family-run olive oil mill to discover the tradition and culture of extra virgin olive oil, and enjoy a guided olive oil tasting.

Then we proceed through a wonderful landscape sprinkled with gentle hills, villas and castles. We pass the water springs of the river Fibbio and follow it until we reach the suburb called Ferrazze.

We return to Verona along flat dirt paths, surrounded by water and vegetation before taking the city cycle track to reach Porta Vescovo, an ancient city gate, entering the walls of Verona and returning to the starting point.
