Easy rolling hills and craggy expanses unwind in a zigzag of valleys and elevations, alternating between tracts of dry land, shallow depressions and shards of spring water courses flashing here and there between ironwood and oak tree thickets, juniper shrubs, leafy vineyards, fruit groves and grain plantations.

LANDSCAPE

Easy rolling hills and craggy expanses unwind in a zigzag of valleys and elevations, alternating between tracts of dry land, shallow depressions and shards of spring water courses flashing here and there between ironwood and oak tree thickets, juniper shrubs, leafy vineyards, fruit groves and grain plantations. The area is one of such outstanding natural beauty and unspoilt landscapes that it is the subject of much public interest, some sites being awarded environmental protection status. Further enhancing the environmental value of the hills is the presence of the protected Mincio River Regional Park which spans the Lombardy region from Lake Garda to the Po river.
