Savouring Soave, the FAIRY-TALE way
GlobalSpa|GlobalSpa Digital Issue 7
WHILE TRAVEL PLANS EVERYWHERE ARE ON PAUSE, HOW ABOUT EMBARKING ON AN ENCHANTING VIRTUAL GETAWAY? LET’S WHISK YOU AWAY ON A MAGICAL TRIP TO SOAVE IN THE VENETO REGION OF NORTHERN ITALY.

If you are ever to visit Soave in the month of April and May, you’ll be enamored with the heady fragrance of wisteria dripping down in purple splendor at the most surprising places. Encasing the place in a curtain of light lilac blossom, this hardy creeper that grows out of nooks and crannies, leaves in its wake a trail of pale purple blossoms and a scent that would make one stop in their trails. Just sheer magic!

Soave is a charming day trip from Verona. The Soave Castle is about a half an hour ride from the city of Verona and a must-visit, if one is in love with the quaint charm of yesteryears. In Italian, Soave means sweet and pleasant and a sweeping view of the vineyard laden slopes around the castle are testimony to this.

Empresario mexicano encabeza megaproyecto deportivo en Verona

El emblemático estadio de futbol veronés Marcantonio Bentegodi está a punto de pasar a la historia. El gigantesco y vetusto monstruo de cemento será demolido en los próximos meses.

Los impulsores de esa obra, que arrancará a principios de 2021, son el exfutbolista alemán Thomas Berthlod y el empresario mexicano afincado en Nueva York César Octavio Esparza Portillo.
