Located in Sant'Ambrogio di Valpolicella, Villa Serego Alighieri is a destination that cannot be missed by anyone interested in art, history and literature. This Venetian Villa, in fact, was built by Dante Alighieri's son and is still owned by the poet's direct descendants.
Dante Alighieri spent a number of years in Verona during his exile and in 1353, after his death, his son Pietro purchased a large 120-hectare estate, known as the Possessione Casal dei Ronchi in Gargagnano.
The estate is still farmed as vineyards and, after 21 generations, the Counts Serego Alighieri, Dante's descendants, manage a vine-growing and wine-making enterprise, as well as a guesthouse (the Foresteria), which is available for corporate meetings and events and offers accommodation in 8 elegant apartments.
The rural outbuildings – recently restored in a countryside-mansion style – also include 2 congress halls, and other common areas, as well as a professional kitchen where tasting events and cooking courses are held for both amateurs and professionals.
