City and Surrounding


The Valpolicella is a hilly area at the foot of the Veronese pre-Alps. It includes the territory of seven municipalities, all belonging to the province of Verona. The valley is bounded by the river Adige to the south, by the hills of Parona and Quinzano to the east, while to the north it extends as far as the mountains of Lessinia. To the west Mount Pastello separates the Valpolicella from the Val d’Adige.

Renowned since ancient Roman times for its vineyards and wine-making, and particularly for Amarone wine, it is equally important for the quarrying of Veronese red marble.

As for architecture, the landscape of the Valpolicella is adorned with fine villas in the traditional Veneto style as well as with churches and chapels, villages and farmhouses which enrich the territory with evidence of its long history.

To walk in this land means to taste not only history, art and culture, but also a good cup of wine directly from the winery of the producer. Hiking is always a pleasure, whatever the travel or season.


The village of San Giorgio, in the Sant'Ambrogio council area, is surrounded by olive groves and vineyards. It is situated on top of a hill and buildings, which are constructed from the same limestone as the hill it sits on, closely embrace the Parish Church in the centre. It is a natural fortress and can only be reached after a long and tiring walk. This is why the village is also known as "Inganna Poltron".

The San Giorgio parish church is one of the most important examples of a monument from the Romanic period in the Verona area.

There is a museum next to the church with an impressive collection of objects related to the history, art, culture and folklore of San Giorgio.


Lake Garda is the largest lake in Italy. To the south it is surrounded by morainic hills, while to the north high mountain chains give it the form and movement of a fjord and also protect it, making its Mediterranean climate particularly mild.

The quality of the light here, the mildness of the climate, and the rich vegetation - made up mostly of olives and palm trees, cypresses, oleanders, lemon and orange trees – make it the most attractive of all the Italian lakes. Signs of the lake’s interesting history and culture are scattered throughout the area, against the backdrop of this sublime landscape
