Valeggio sul Mincio

Overview

Charming medieval town among the morainic hills

Located on the border between Lombardy and Veneto, Valeggio sul Mincio is a small medieval town, 27 kilometres from Verona. Although it is surrounded by hills of morainic origin, its name means “flat place”. Crossed by the Mincio River, it is the ideal starting point for many cultural and naturalistic excursions, especially for cycling enthusiasts who can choose various routes between the Ciclopista delle Risorgive, the Terre del Custoza Ring and the E6/Eurovelo 7 Cycling Route.

We recommend a visit to the 60-hectare Sigurtà Garden Park where you can admire the blooms of tulips and roses, get lost in its labyrinth or meet the animals of its farm. Here is the sumptuous Villa Maffei-Sigurtà, which refers to the classicism of Andrea Palladio. Visits and wine tastings organized by the family business are available on site.

A short distance away is the hamlet of Borghetto sul Mincio with its bell tower, its water mills and the suggestive Visconteo Bridge, a fortified dam built in 1393 by Duke Gian Galeazzo Visconti. Also known as Ponte Lungo, it connects with the Scaliger Castle of the thirteenth century through two high crenellated curtains and constitutes the fortified complex of the "Serraglio". Do not forget a visit to the small Church of San Marco Evangelista of the eighteenth century, built on the remains of a previous Romanesque church of the eleventh century.
