If you need any kind of info are available to suggest the most interesting places to visit even outside the classic tourist destinations in the area between Verona city, Lake Garda, Valpolicella and Lessinia.

If you are interested in visiting the museum and my father's beekeeping shown in the video and in the "Les Zed" article, all you have to do is agree on your arrival.

If you want to enjoy Italian or regional cooking lessons I will put you in touch with my friend chef Cristina.

For water sports like rafting or kayaking near the Manticus there is a famous canoe club run by the multiple world champion of descent on the Vladi Panato river.

Also I have friends who can take you on horseback excursions to wonderful places.

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren eine Woche in Manticus 1 und 2. Pünktlich bei der Ankunft war Marco, ein sehr freundlicher und hilfsbereiter Vermieter, zur Stelle und hat uns die Wohnungen, den Aussenbereich mit Parkplätzen u den Fluss gezeigt. Die Wohnungen waren sehr sauber u schön eingerichtet. Der Aussenbereich lädt zum grillen und chillen ein. Gelegen in einem ruhigen Dorf nahe dem See und Verona. Wir hatten eine erholsame Zeit und kommen gerne wieder.

The territories of the Mantico in the past were an extensive forest and a place of ancient forest cults.

The toponym derives from the Latin Nemus Manticus - Bosco di Magia / Divinazione.

Later it was the property of the Benedictines and hunting grounds of the Scaligeri.

Today the Magione is crossed by the Cyclopist of the Sun coming from the Brenner and in 10 km you arrive directly in the heart of Verona.

There is a small airport for experiences of Parachute and Flight, but the territories of the Mantic are especially characteristic for the typicality of its taverns and inns along the course of the Adige up to Verona.

In the small country village of San Vito al Mantico it is possible to taste the typical Italian and Veronese cuisine at the Biondani trattoria, the wonderful and creative pizzas at San Francisco and Jonathan, drink the excellent beer at the Soul Cafè-covo dei Birrati or taste wines rooms at the Varipinta Osteria Accordini.

In the village there is a small shop selling fruit, vegetables and groceries, a bakery and a pharmacy while the children's playground is in front of the elementary schools.
