What to do and see in Soave

Soave is the City of Wine and according to what is said it owes its name to Dante Aligheri who, fascinated by the place, the wine and the hospitality of the inhabitants, defined the town as "soave".

Reaching Soave is quite convenient, whether you start from an apartment in Verona or from a house in Vicenza . In fact, it is located just off the motorway: if you have traveled the stretch of the A4 motorway that goes from Verona to Vicenza , you will probably have noticed a castle that stands on a hill and dominates the town below... it is precisely the Castello di Sweet .

The Castle of Soave

The castle, which dominates the town from the top of a hill, can be easily reached by car, but also on foot from the town centre, choosing between the panoramic path that can be taken from Porta Vicenza and the shorter climb along the original medieval street. Going up from the path you will also come across the Parco degli Ulivi , a relaxing green area that we recommend for having a packed lunch, or simply for children to play.

Soave Castle can be visited every day from 9am to 12pm and from 2pm to 4pm. For further information, castellodisoave .

Soave road

In the historic center you will also notice several wine bars and cellars: yes the famous Soave was born right here, a white wine considered among the Italian excellences: it was the first Italian DOC (1936) and the area is considered the largest vineyard in Europe for extension. The Soave DOC was followed, in more recent years, by two other important denominations: Recioto di Soave DOCG (1998) and Soave Superiore DOCG (2011).

Soave road is therefore unmissable , a route of around 50 km divided into different itineraries along which you can discover wineries, taste wines, taste the best of the local cuisine and enjoy the bucolic landscape.
