An enchanting path leading us into the medieval atmosphere of the Scaliger Castle where to enjoy breath-taking views of the hills and vineyards.

The ascent to Tenda Mount is characterised by the presence of the European nettle tree, country maple, robinia and the manna ash and beautiful dry stone walls that remind us of the rural tradition of these lands. Moreover the cypresses and the typical wild shrubby vegetation alternate with the vineyards adding shape and colour to these wonderful Veronese hills.

Worth of discovering are the landscape from the Capitello della Bassanella with terraced vineyards and a view of the Ponsara valley. You can enjoy the breath-taking view of the D'Alpone Valley and the plain to the south from Piazza Scheeti too.

The itinerary is enjoyable during the whole year; one of the best periods is the month of May (third weekend) during the Medieval Festival of Soave Wine allowing taking a real dip into the past.

Author’s recommendation

Particularly worthy of note in "Piazza Scheeti" is the peculiar conformation of the rocky terrain characterised by the presence of nummulites, that are fossils with a discoid shape which look like coins. Hence the name "scheéti", which in Venetian language means coins.

RESPECT THE TERRITORY:

  • Do not throw on the ground paper towels, cans, glass or plastic bottles, candy wrappers and much less cigarette butts or packs.

Equipment

Hiking requires suitable clothing and equipment. Even on relatively short and easy walks, it is preferable to be well equipped to avoid unpleasant surprises and to face unexpected events such as a sudden thunderstorm or a power outage: unexpected events are part of the fun as well!

What to bring while hiking:

- suitable carved-soled sports shoes, preferably boots to avoid ankle problems

- good water supply according to your needs (from 1 to 2 litres depending on temperature, possibility of refuelling, duration of the trail)

- snacks (such as dried fruit or bars)

- wind and rainproof jacket

- spare t-shirt and socks

- sunscreen lotion

- sunglasses

- gloves and hat during winter months- GPX track to be uploaded on the mobile phone and used through specifically designed Apps (we strongly recommend View Ranger)
