A journey along the
River Mincio
to discover landscapes, tradition and history.

Surrounded by vineyards

In the Veneto region, near the city of Verona and Peschiera, leaving Lake Garda behind and following the Mincio path, after a short journey you will arrive, among the ancient remains of Valeggio Sul Mincio, a city lying on laughing hills and caressed by gentle breezes. At the top of a hill, surrounded by a greenish freshness and overlooking the Sigurtà park, the farm "Corte Fornello" appears, where an intense sensation is born spontaneously, inspired by the purity of the land, the vineyards, the farms and the wineries. Find yourself in a seemingly new place, but with the awareness of having always lived there. Resulting in a warm and familiar experience.

A land rich in colors, aromas and flavors, where food products are intertwined with tradition and history, in harmony with the culture of other wine cities such as Bardolino, Valpolicella or Custoza, which lend their name to our products. In them you will find pleasant and easy excursions near Valeggio such as the Scaligero Castle that stands on the hill and dominates the city since the Middle Ages, the Visconteo bridge, the only one of the 3 that still exists and finally Borghetto, known as an old mill town. Admiring the sweet landscapes, we continue visiting small farms that for generations have been "taking care" of these lands, from which some of the excellence of Italian food that we love to have on our tables derive.

Here the search for millenary values ​​is poured into the loving care of the vineyard, the enologist's efforts and finds deep roots in the history and continuity of a family that projects, with the new generations, towards a future sensitive to the needs of modern times, harmoniously fusing ancient traditions and new technologies.

Verona: A city of dreams

Barely 30 minutes away we find in the Veneto region the beautiful Italian city of love, Verona, where the story of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet lives in its streets. Full of innumerable monuments, palaces, squares, museums, churches and cathedrals you can get to it in multiple ways but it will never be the same because Verona has always been the mark that time and Italian culture has left on its writings. Surrounded by hills and trapped by the meander of the Adige river, we find a tourist city with air and land connections. Its historic center, declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco, is recognized for its architecture and beauty where Renaissance buildings rise from it crowded streets to fill the city with color and history.

The itinerary through this magical city can be immense and discovering all its corners is a fantastic experience that will not take more than a couple of days. Even so, from Corte Fornello we want to make a brief summary with our favorite places of greatest tourist interest so that you do not miss a single detail. Starting with the majestic and immense Piazza Bra, the main square of Verona, you will find in the center the Arena, the third largest amphitheater in Italy. Built with the pink stone of Valpolicella, its elliptical shape can accommodate up to 20,000 spectators who attend the Opera Festival each year, transforming the amphitheater into the largest open lyric theater in the world. Returning to Piazza Bra, we find at its back the Verona City Hall and an endless number of Renaissance buildings that house restaurants with a unique view of the square.

Continuing through its streets we find Via Mazzini, a pedestrian street classified as the most important in all of Verona. In it we find neoclassical buildings and the occasional church such as San Tomio, a church dating from the 11th century. Even so, this street becomes a tourist attraction as it is full of shops and brands that offer all kinds of luxury items that hypnotize the passerby. Following this route you will arrive at Piazza Erbe, considered one of the most beautiful squares in all of Italy and known to be built on the ancient Roman forum. Surrounded by majestic buildings such as the Palazzo della Ragione, the Case Mazzanti, the Palazzo Maffei and the Casa dei Mercanti you will find a multitude of incredible frescoes that served as decoration for the most empowered people. From this square you can see the Lamberti Tower, an 84-meter tower that will allow you a panoramic view of the city of Verona, or Porta Borsari, a magnificent Roman gate that was once the main entrance to the city and still stands today despite the passing of the centuries.

Near Piazza Erbe, walking along Via Cappello, we will find on the left the jewel in the Veronese crown, Juliet's house. In the courtyard you will find some walls full of declarations of love and a statue of the beloved Juliet. An ancient legend says that the person who touches her breasts will return to the city with the love of his life, so he will find countless people taking a photo next to this precious statue, auguring that the legend will be fulfilled. Inside Juliet's house there is a museum that will tell in detail the history of the most important Italian novel and will allow the tourist to go up to Juliet's balcony to enjoy the complete experience.

On the banks of the river Adige we find the Castelvecchio castle where we can find a museum about the city of Verona in the past. This building, built in the middle of the 14th century, served as a defense of the city in medieval times. Connecting both banks, at the foot of the Castelvecchio castle we find the Scaligero bridge, a huge and famous bridge characterized by small red bricks. Once we have crossed the river Adige we find the ancient Roman theater of Verona where every summer the festival dedicated to the Shakespearean theater is held. Behind him, we will find some old stairs that will teleport us to the best panoramic view that we can see in Verona. They go up the hill and take us to the Castel de San Pietro to make us enjoy a unique romantic atmosphere accompanied by a picture of the entire city of Verona.

One of the tourist attractions in Italy are its Churches and Cathedrals. In Verona we can find many of them, built in the past but still standing strong and robust among its streets. Among the most important we can find the Duomo di Verona, built among the rubble of two early Christian churches that were later dedicated to Santa Maria Matricolare. Inside we can find the famous artistic work dell'Assunta by Titian and during your visit you can access the bathipster of San Giovanni in Fonte, where a baptismal font sculpted entirely in marble will capture all our attention.

Another of the most important ecclesiastical places that you can visit in Verona is the Basilica di San Zeno, which although a bit far from the city center, you will find completely marble walls and especially a rose window with "The wheel of fortune", which it represents the six phases of human life and the futility of material joys.

Finally, one of the most important monuments in the city of Verona, Juliet's tomb, which is located on the outskirts of what was once the medieval city. In the former convent of San Francesco al Corso, where the respect and history of lovers will persist in the memory of the city.
