On this tour you don't see major attractions: you delve in a Little World of the Past.
Like in a time journey, a few miles away from Verona city, you are immersed in the country feel of the Verona Low Lands.
Here a variety of rice is grown: the Vialone Nano
, the king of rice varieties for risotto
It is a privilege for discerning travelers and foodies to be in a kind of digital and geographical remoteness, dominated by silence in the non-extensive, typically Italian puzzle of little estates.
The lanscape is spotted by ancient rice-mills and villas. Water is everywhere
