Verona and its surrounding territory

Verona boasts an enviable geographic position at the crossroads between Northern Europe and the Mediterranean countries of the south. Located in the Veneto, a region equally rich in beautiful landscapes (the Dolomite Mountains, Lake Garda, the Lombardy Plain countryside, the Venice Lagoon, the Po Delta, the Adratic Sea), as it is in great cities of art and culture (Vicenza, Padua, Bologna, Trento and, of course, the magical Venice). Add to the mix, the countless charming ancient towns that dot the region (Asolo, Castelfranco, Marostica, Bassano del Grappa, Este) and the Veneto is a place not to be missed by any visitor to Italy.

The territory surrounding Verona is dominated by the River Adige that gracefully braids its way through the city with gentle curves) and the low, undulating foothills of the Dolomites that ramble off into the horizon. To the north of the city, the sweep of the river valley and the pre-Alpine climate combine to create an impressive mountainous landscape that continues all the way to the spectacular Dolomite mountains. To the south, by contrast, extends the great Lombardy Plain, a flat expanse as far as the eye can see, repeatedly cut by the massive sway of the River Po (Italy's longest and most famous river). A few kilometres from Verona sits Lake Garda, Italy's largest and deepest lake. Lake Garda's wonderfully temperate climate and typically Mediterranean flora have long made it the preferred playground of locals and the savoured summer destination of tourists from around the world.

Verona enjoys a pleasant climate year-round (ranging from 18°-28°C in summer and 0°-7°C in winter.
