Pescantina is an Italian town in the province of Verona, in Valpolicella about 12 kilometers from Verona.
The origins of the country are lost in remote times. A difference from other places in Valpolicella, few finds dating back to prehistoric times have been found in Pescantina and therefore it is difficult to say with certainty that the area was permanently inhabited before the arrival of the Romans.
Its peculiarity is that it occurs along the Adige, which was fundamental for the development of the country, making Pescantina a crucial node for trade and navigation until the end of the Second World War.
Very important for the territory is the cultivation of the PGI Verona peach, so much so that from the first weeks of June until the end of August, during the "La Pesca a Tavola" event, you can taste numerous dishes prepared with this sweet fruit in several restaurants in Pescantina and surroundings.
Pescantina today stands as a very important center for thermal well-being: in fact, one of its fractions, the Ospedaletto di Pescantina houses two important thermal parks where you can spend a pleasant relaxing day enjoying the benefits brought by the thermal water, which naturally flows here.
