What's Sirmione Like?

You will discover Sirmione hotels either in the town or spread out along the green peninsula. Sirmione was protected by Scaliger Castle, built in the 12th century. Surrounded by water, this fortification was part of Verona's defences. The Grotto of Catullus, is not a grotto, but the spectacular remains of a three-story Roman villa designed for a patrician family. A small museum here explains the excavations at this tranquil headland site. Present day spas in Sirmione use the lake's mineral laden waters and there is evidence that the Romans did likewise, with metal piping leading to a bathhouse at the Roman villa. Sirmione's centre is a confusing trail of narrow pedestrianised lanes, where it is easy but fun to get lost. You will find plenty of restaurants and ice-cream parlours when you are ready for a breather. While in Sirmione take a boat trip across the lake, either to nearby Desenzano del Gardo or the other resorts. If these are too sedate, you can also enjoy high-speed motor boat rides. Children will enjoy the treat of a visit to the Gardaland theme park. The town of Verona with its famous coliseum is an easy distance away for a day trip.
