The village of Soave, in the province of Verona, stands at the feet of the Lessini Mountains and looks like a pretty medieval town, whose characteristics stand out from the Castle and from the numerous buildings built in that period. The Manor dominates the entire area and the curtain wall completely surrounds the ancient village.

Soave is famous all over the world also for its white wine with the same name: on the gentle hill slopes the grape garganega is born. It is the base for the Soave DOC wine, classic Soave DOC, classic Soave DOCG and the Recioto di Soave DOCG.
In fact it seems that this name was given to the village by Dante Alighieri, guest for a banquet at the Castle Scaligero due to its delicious wine.

The Castle is a typical military construction of the Middle Ages and stands on Mount Tenda. This consists of a high tower, the Mastio, around which the turns of the walls that collect three courtyards are divided. Along Via Roma, the heart of the medieval town, the main monuments of Soave overlook. You have to visit the Cathedral of San Lorenzo, the Palazzo di Giustizia and the Palazzo del Capitano, seat of the municipality of Soave. Going outside the walls, to the north of the village, we suggest a stop in Borgo Bassano for a visit to the Sanctuary of the Madonna della Bassanella.

Soave has also been awarded the Orange Flag quality label by TCI since 2003 for its historical and environmental beauty.

Among the local products, in addition to wine grapes, we note: Monte Veronese cheese, Vialone Nano rice, oil, cherries from the Veronese hills, Verona radicchio and chestnut from San Mauro.

In May, during the "Soave White Wine Medieval Festival" the medieval village is celebrated along with the white Soave wine, while the Garganega Grape is celebrated in September during the "Grape Festival", the oldest in Italy.
