From the hill top of San Giorgio, there is an excellent panorama, with the whole Valpolicella valley spread out below. On a clear day, the view spreads from the Sermione peninsula on Lake Garda to the beginnings of the Apennine Mountains, and the whole of Verona.
We fell in love with this beautiful and romantic place and went back the year after..... First we got married in Verona and then we spent our honeymoon in San Giorgio.
The village is located on the top of the hill, surrounded by fields where, in addition to vineyards, olive and cherry trees predominate
San Giorgio is well known for it's magnificent barbaric-romanesque church
Bell tower - Campanile - rebuilt in the twelfth century after the great earthquake in 1117
The monastery - also rebuilt after the earthquake
San Giorgio is part of the town of Sant'Ambrogio (right down the hill)
Panoramic view .... Lake Garda can also be seen
