Tapahtuma > The environment of Lake Garda on foot and by public transport: wine and oil tasting around the Rocca

THE ENVIRONMENT OF LAKE GARDA ON FOOT AND BY PUBLIC TRANSPORT: WINE AND OIL TASTING AROUND THE ROCCA Easy walk (about 3 hours) using public transport in the best settings of Veronese side of Lake Garda. Treck begins in Garda, rises to the most panoramic point, the Rocca of Garda, a cliff above the lake 294 m. a.s.l. and ends in Bardolino. On the way we will taste wines and oil in a farm. This tour gives the opportunity to enjoy one of the best sceneries of Lake Garda as well as tasting peculiar agricultural products grown here. We depart from Verona by bus (public transport) to reach Garda in about  an hour. Garda is a quiet and pleasant settlement on the Verona side of the lake after which the lake itself is named. Following a brief tour of the village centre, we depart for a walk under a cool oak forest to gain the summit of the Rocca (m. 294), a clifftop with a spectacular view: below you have Garda and St. Vigilio’s Cape towards the North, whereas southwards lies Bardolino and the southern end of Lake Garda with the paeninsula of Sirmione and, on the horizon, the morainic hills of the former Garda glacier. Ahead, you may see the Brescia coastline with the Rethic Alps streaming northwards. Having appreciated all of this, we set out towards a typical local farm with a guided tour of the vineyards, the winery and oil mill. We will taste the best productions of locally denominated oil (DOP) and three local wines, accompanied by traditional platters. After this break we set down towards Bardolino crossing vineyards and olive groves, to reach the lake promenade. Here we may have the time to bathe on one of the many beaches used for this purpose. Then, walking along the promenade, we will enter Bardolino where we will conclude the tour visiting the village centre that retains many traits of its historical layout and architecture. Finally we will depart from here, by bus, to Verona.
A total immersion in the full range of Veneto landscapes, referring throughout to the themes of sustainability of Expo 2015: Planet, Nature, Food and Life.
