The Bardolino route
Discovering the territory and wineries of Bardolino
The Bardolino route is a newly projected cycle pedestrian path started from the collaboration of six districts, including Bardolino, and financed by the Gal Baldo Lessinia Association. The project aims to enhance the big value of local resources: both the historical and cultural ones, together with landscape and food and wine tradition; it is precisely from the Bardolino wine that that this range of beautiful routes takes inspiration.
All the participating districts are in fact ones of the major producers of Bardolino Classico. Particularly, together with Bardolino, the other districts are: Affi, Cavaion Veronese, Costermano sul Garda, Garda and Rivoli.
While crossing these paths, you’ll be surrounded by green hills and vineyards, as well as historic villages and you can enjoy pleasant pit stops in numerous farms to taste wine and other local products. So, it means a range of paths not only for outdoor excursions enthusiasts but also for those who are simply curious or wanting to discover new and genuine tastes.
