San Giorgio di Valpollicella, Sant'Ambrogio di Valpolicella (VR) Veneto
San Giorgio is a small hamlet within the municipality of Sant’Ambrogio di Valpolicella and its position has earned it a unique nickname: in fact it stands on a plateau, amid vineyards and olive groves, with a splendid view, but it can only be accessed by means of a long and tiring walk, despite the fact that it does not seem far away when seen from below. This is why the locals call it “Ingannapoltron” (which literally translates as “armchair deceiver”). At the very heart of the village is the Longobard-Romanic parish church, one of the oldest churches in the Verona area, and the settlement unfolds all around, with its stone houses, creating the perfect setting for historical reenactments such as the traditional “Festa delle Fae”. Lastly, don’t miss out on the local produce, including oil and wine, particularly Valpolicella, named after the village, and also Recioto and Amarone.
