If you turn off the Pissarotta, climb, and turn back south you will come to a turn-off that takes you to Moruri, Castagne, Montorio and eventually back to Verona. It's a beautiful ride and you are probably not further than 25 miles from Verona at any point. This area, in the photographs above, is northeast of Verona.
If you were to go west from Verona you would be in the Lake Garda/Monte Baldo/Valpolicella area with yet more climbing opportunities. The further you travel due north from Verona the more the climbing gets serious. If you are lazy you can head south/southwest into the Po valley where it's absolutely flat.
