Lake Garda has so much to offer, but not many of them can beat the excitement and splendor of the Castle of Sirmione. Bounded entirely by water, the castle provides an incredible sightseeing adventure for holiday seekers. The Castle of Sirmione is regarded as one of the top ten best castles to visit for tourists. It is a magnificent building on the exterior and full of activities on the interior. There are more interesting facts that you can learn about Sirmione but the Castle is the most valued one. Be [present for the tour because no photos of the castle can be taken, in fact, a man was once arrested for sketching it, yes, it’s that beautiful!

    Centro Storica Sirmione

    This is a nice historic center that is well worth spending some time exploring. A lively, picturesque centro with plenty of nice restaurants, busy piazzas, upscale shops and lake views both directions, not to mention the ferry dock for other points on Lake Garda.

    Archaeological site of Grotte di Catullo

    This mis-named Grotto is a totally exceptional Roman Villa at the headland in Sirmione. Unusually for this part of Italy, the excellent information panels are multi-language including English.

    Jamaica Beach

    This is a great beach area which was enhanced by the low level of the water in the lake exposing the rocks. Exceptionally low water levels on Lake Garda have revealed previously unseen flat rocks making this an unmissable sight.
