The Adige valley is certainly one of the most fascinating among the areas of the countryside surrounding Lake Garda – not only because of its natural beauty, but also because of a multitude of historical sites, among them Forte Rivoli and the Goethe monument. The circular route presented here starts in Rivoli Veronese which can be reached easily from all towns on the eastern shore, among them Garda, Bardolino, Lazise and Peschiera del Garda. From our starting point, the route leads north to Zuana and then to Lubiara via a paved gravel road. At this point, cross the mountains to reach Tessari and then the asphaltic section to the town of Canale, from where you reach the Napoleon monument. By taking the paved gravel road which follows the course of the Adige river, you return to Rivoli Veronese.
