    Negrar

    Are you a wine taster........well this is the right chance for you to taste a range of the lovely Valpolicella wine.....rent a car and go to Fumane and Negrar to visit one of the " Cantine" and have a taste......after you can have a very nice meal in one of the "enoteche" where you can try the typical cuisine of the area together with the wines.

    Only half an hour from Verona...

    Only half an hour from Verona is Lake Garda with its many small resorts, e.g. Garda, Bardolino, Malcesine and Riva. The photo shows Malcesine, on the eastern bank of Lake Garda, a village which gradually developped around the Scaligero Castle and the Palace of Capitani during the 16th century. A cable-way connects Malcesine to Monte Baldo.

    South of Malcesine is Brenzone, situated along the Riviera degli Olivi where the lake is still narrows and the waters deep. Not far from the bank are two small islands. You can hike up the hills, pass through the olive-yards and climp to the Alpine huts.

    Lago di Garda is just 30km from Verona so do make the effort to visit Italy's largest lake. I managed to go round most of it by hydrofoil. Each of the lakeside towns boast unique characteristics. My favourite would have to be Sirmione which is located on a peninsula. Here you find the Grottoes of Catullo which are ruins of thermal baths built during the Roman period. Sirmione is famous for its thermal water which is said to cure many ailments. Another attraction to visit is the Scaligera fortress which can be found at the entrance to Sirmione. The views from this medieval building are breathtaking.

    An intro to Venice Carnevale

    We stayed at the Hotel Roxy Plaza in Soave.
    The entrance hall was decorated with this mask - it was an idea for my shopping list in Venice.
