This picture-perfect hamlet is barely 24 blocks square and yet it boasts a magnificent
medieval wall surrounded by a moat, as well as a 10th-century castle with crenellated walls and no fewer than
24 towers. Over the course of 400 years, many fierce battles were fought for the possession of the castle.
Finally, in 1405 the Venetian Republic established its governance, and in 1517 Soave was granted the right
to fly the standard of San Marco and to use the flagpole. A peaceful period started in the following years
and lasted up to the arrival of Napoleon's army. You probably know of this town because it is the center of one
of Italy's most prolific wine regions. Thanks to its location right off the autostrada, it is
easy to pay a visit to this friendly, untouched town, and we highly recommend that you do!
