Veronese Itinerary – Villafranca Volta Mantovana
Still riding along bike paths or country roads, from Villafranca we head to the west and skirt the hill of Custoza, the scene of a famous battle in the Second War of Independence. Many are the vineyards from which delicious wines are produced: we are in the hills of Garda, whose soils are very suitable for those crops. One comfortably arrives at Valeggio sul Mincio, a town touristically known for its castle and the large Sigurtà Park. Just beyond the river, which we cross on the ancient bridge, we land in Borghetto, a beautiful center with typical small restaurants offering excellent local cuisine, and with several water mills. We have entered Lombardy, and after a few kilometers here we are in Volta Mantovana, where we find the basic route again; if the physical and weather conditions permit, we can decide to go directly to Goito, without going up to Volta.
