Tradition and taste - Lessinia is also characterized by its oenological and gastronomical tradition, related to typical products and dishes: "Gnocchi de malga", mushrooms, chestnuts, "Monte Veronese cheese" and the well-known wines "Valpollicella", "Soave", "Lessini Durello". Today's village festivals, in the beautiful Lessinia scenery, remind of ancient rituals and traditions.
Sport and free-time - On foot, on horseback, by bike, or skiing, the Park is an ideal destination for every excursionist and for every lover of mountains. The possibilities of exploring the Lessinia plateau are innumerable: the fans of cross-country skiing cannot miss Translessinia, that spreads out for 19 Km from the San Giorgio ski resort to the mountain pass "Passo Fittanze"; the modern Ski Centre Parpari at Roveré guarantees wonderful panoramas. Those who prefer trekking will be able to choose between a lot of striking paths: the suggestive "European Track E5" or the way "del Carega", maybe with the company of an expert guide.
Floral-faunal Area at a Malga Derocon - The floral-faunal Area at a Malga Derocon is the Centre of Environmental Education inside the Lessinia Park. Built on the 54 hectares of an ancient "Malga", the Area includes a faunal corral, a botanic way, and a building called "baito", nowadays used as a Visitors Centre. Tourists can walk along the tracks of the Area with the company of expert guides and watch the run of chamois, roes and stags from a close position, or take photos of the animals. The visit continues with a walk that allows to see the famous "town of rocks", some secular beeches and a botanical garden holding 60 typical species of trees, shrubs, herbs and ferns. The floral-faunal Area may be the right starting point for trips to the "malghe" and to the "contrade" nearby.
