We cycle past sublime vineyards until we reach the Valpolicella Wine Route. A nice gentle downhill run takes us to the village of San Giorgio, so typical of this area, with its ‘‘Piazzetta“ or small town square and Romanesque 7th Century ‘‘Pieve“-Church, most likely built on the remains of a temple. A visit to the neighbouring monastery with its particularly beautiful cloister is a must. We then stop at a wine cellar and gain some insight into the production of the world-famous Valpolicella and Amarone wines, which we of course get the chance to sample. We then make our way back to the hotel, negotiating the beautiful hilly terrain with ease thanks to our e-bikes.
