Soave


The medieval town of Soave is totally surrounded by walls which slope down from the castle, and it is surrounded by vine-yards which produce the famous Soave wines.

The area has been settled since the stone Ages, became a "pagus" in Roman times, and its historical centre was built by the Hohenstanfen family after the invasion of the Longobards in 568 A.D.

The town on account of its strategic position became the victim of much civil strife, and it is for this reason that it now boasts battlemented walls with twenty-four towers and a splendid castle standing guard over the surrounding hills and plains.

For a "foretaste" of the delicious Soave wines, go to the sections dedicated to the area's cuisine and cellars. Go along the "Soave Road", winding your way through vineyards, cellars, restaurants and historical monuments. (www.stradadelvinosoave.com)
