Come and visit San Pietro in Cariano, a little village not far from Lake Garda, surrounded by gentle hills full of stately villas dating back to the Venetian domination.

 

The path goes through historically interesting places with Roman remains and evidence of Venetian rule. The landscape is characterised by cypress trees, contrasting with views of the hills, rural courtyards, small stone hamlets and corners where you can stop and taste local products.

 

Do not miss a visit to the village of Castelrotto perched on a hill to observe the stunning Valpolicella landscape from above. The trail leads to Villa Betteloni, an authentic 14th-century Venetian villa.

 

In Corrubbio there will be a stop at the small ancient (12th century) church of San Martino.

Author’s recommendation

We recommend you to visit the neoclassical Sant’Ulderico Church (1828), which overlooks the picturesque little square of the village of Castelrotto.

Safety information

Remember to assess carefully the type of path you are going to take, the places you are going to visit and the current season. Did it rain? Caution! The paths will be much more slippery and therefore you will need to be very careful.

Be sure to tell someone where you are going and how long your hike is supposed to last. 

112 is the telephone number for emergencies.

Local authorities and associations in the areas concerned do not assume any legal responsibility for any damage, or accidents, to people and things that may occur along the signposted routes.

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.
  • Take your waste with you or wait until you find a litter bin.
  • Respect the flora, fauna and crops, do not pick fruit or wild plants; they may have received phytosanitary treatments.
  • Report any disorder or abnormal behaviour in the town hall.
