Bike Tour from Verona Including Amarone Wine Tasting in the Valpolicella Wine Country
Hop on a bike for a ride into the vineyard-covered hills of Valpolicella on this 4-hour tour from Verona. Pair your scenic bike ride with a relaxing wine-tasting session at a local winery. Savor the flavors of amarone and valpolicella red wine while learning about winemaking in Italy’s Veneto region from an expert sommelier. Then savor the views as you descend by bike back into Verona.
Numbers are limited to 12 people on this small-group tour, ensuring you’ll receive personalized attention from your guide.

Meet your guide at Castelvecchio in central Verona in the afternoon. Get outfitted with your bike and helmet, and pedal out of the city and into the hills of Valpolicella, one of the Veneto region’s most famous wine-producing areas, ranking just after Chianti in total Italian Denominazione di Origine Controllata (DOC) wine production.
Enjoy the fresh air as you wind your way along a creek and through the vineyard-covered slopes above Verona on a mostly flat route. Hop off your bike at a local winery, such as Musella Winery & Relais, and head inside for a wine tasting.
Learn about Valpolicella’s winemaking heritage as you sip a selection of prized local wines, including light, fragrant valpolicellas — similar in style to French Beaujolais wine — typically made using corvina, rondinella and molinara grapes. Contrast valpolicella’s light character with the intense flavors of amarone wine, made from partially dried corvina grapes.

After your tastings, hop on your bike and cruise back to central Verona, for a total biking distance of 12 miles (20 km).
