Winding my way past Pescantina I came across this flock of sheep. I am still surprised that 15 minutes from Verona you can find scenes like this.
Hail storms are fairly common so some vineyards deploy these black nets when there is a risk of hail in order to protect the vines.
A large network of canals deliver water from the north to the agricultural areas south of Verona. A short climb, seen on the left, brings you over a ridge onto a plateau before descending down into Lake Garda. This perspective gives a sense of the size of Monte Baldo.
I experimented and took some new roads that wind through vineyards with views of Lake Garda in the distance.
Bardolino, on Lake Garda, was sparkling and very photogenic today!
From Garda I did a nasty climb to the village of Maciaga. An overlook provided more photo opportunities.
The Villa Pelligrini-Cipolla at Castion di Costermano is spectacular, a nice place to get married or throw a party to impress your friends.
Using different roads I wound my way back to Pescantina, passing a trout fisherman.
The Castelvecchio welcomed me as I re-entered the historic center of Verona.
