THE MOST ENCHANTING MEDIEVAL VILLAGES OF ITALY IN THE VENETO AND LOMBARDY REGIONS
Discover the hidden charm of Italy within the provinces of Verona, Mantua and Brescia
Minor Italian sites, at times unknown and hidden, are sometimes capable of representing the country’s millennial history in the best manner. This is the case of a few villages, which continue to lay isolated and undisturbed from the economic development of modern times. Here are just three of these small paradises on earth:
San Giorgio di Valpolicella
Is an antique small village located upon a hill which dominates the surrounding countryside and from where it is possible to enjoy breathtaking views towards the valley of the river Adige, Lake Garda and as far as to the town of Verona. But, nevertheless, the real jewel of this place consists in the early Romanesque church of Saint George, which one can absolutely not miss as it is unique in its kind in all Italy.
Borghetto di Valeggio on the river Mincio
Just nearby Lake Garda, within the municipality of Valeggio sul Mincio, a further fascinating medieval small village can be visited, which is Borghetto. Built at a ford of the river Mincio, the charm of this small village exists thanks to a harmonious combination of history and nature.
And furthermore, it is just near Valeggio, within Lombard territory, that another precious little jewel lays hidden away, which is Castellaro Lagusello. As almost all typical medieval small villages, this place is still surrounded by fortified defensive walls, which reflect in a small lake of moraine origin within a hilly landscape of undisturbed beauty.
