Verona between a good glass of wine and a horse race
Verona is much more than Juliet’s Balcony, the Arena, the bends of the Adige River that protect it like a treasure chest.
The city praised by Shakespeare and many other writers, in recent months has been the stage for a safe restart of various sectors, starting from the Fairs, and then on with shows and concerts in the Arena during the summer.
And now? When we think of Verona, it is natural to also think of the wineries of Valpolicella, the Soave hills and those of Custoza: the city has always linked its name to food and wine.
And here comes Hostaria Verona, the Wine Festival that always takes place downtown during the harvest period. On 8, 9 and 10 October the wine tasting itinerary, with entrance from Piazza Bra or Piazza dei Signori, touches the main points of the city center and participation is allowed only to Covid Pass holders: a journey between flavors, tastes, sayings of the popular culture of Verona, where wine culture becomes entertainment.
There is also another world historically linked to the city of Verona: the world of horse enthusiasts. The Verona-horse combination has been a cultural, historical and economic identity since 1898. For more than a century, the Fieracavalli fair has been a real magnet of interest for all lovers of the equestrian world and for all those who see the horse as a way of conceiving life is now a tradition for the city of Romeo and Juliet, which this year will host the 122nd edition of the fair. The 2021 edition, which will take place in November and will host 751 exhibitors from 25 countries and more than 200 activities including shows, conferences and competitions, doubles the dates and does so to allow anyone to experience everything in full safety: two consecutive weekends, from 4 to 7 November 2021 and from 12 to 14 November 2021.
