Our trip starts from one of the most beautiful castles in the province of Verona, that of Soave.

Inside the castle you can also visit the "Captain's House", see the weapons, the armor of the past and the different coats of arms of the noble families; you will find the Guardian as a guide, who will always be happy to give you information and tell you interesting anecdotes. During the year the castle is open every day, from 9 to 12 and from 14 to 16, except on non-holiday Mondays. Ticket: 7€
