4-hour Valpolicella countryside bike tour from Verona along a gentle route, combined with olive oil tasting. Enjoy the visit to a small family-run oil mill. A small group tour is ideal, and it's also suitable for families and young people.
What to Expect
Meet your guide at Castelvecchio in central Verona, put on your helmet and hop on your bike. Then, set out on your small-group tour, following your local guide out of Verona through one of the ancient city gates, Porta Vescovo. As you leave the city behind, pedal along a safe cycle route, admiring the countryside and relaxing view of the Valpolicella hills. Continue past leafy olive groves and vineyards, along traffic free roads.
You'll hear interesting facts en-route from your guide about local olive farming and olive oil making. After a while, stop at a gorgeous small family-run oil mill producing olive oils. Meet the producer/host and tour the fascinating mill where the oil is produced. Thereafter, you'll continue on the saddle through more of Valpolicella's hills and villages. After a few photo-stops, return to the original start point, where your tour finishes. If you wish, you can mark the end of your tour in style with a Spritz, which is a local aperitif (own expense), in a nice bar.
