What's Sirmione Like?
Sirmione provides a great base for exploring the town, the lakes and nearby cities. It doesn't take long to get to Verona with its Roman Coliseum. Sirmione hotels give you a choice of staying right in the heart of the old town or on the green peninsula. The center of old Sirmione is pedestrianized, with confusing narrow alleys. Don't worry if you get lost though, you will soon find your way out. These streets are a great place to stop for some coffee, lunch or to sample some real Italian ice cream. Be sure to visit the 12th century Scaliger Castle. This fortified building, surrounded by water at the tip of the headland, was part of Verona's defense system. Also on the headland is the Grotto of Catullus. This is not actually a grotto, but a breathtaking archaeological site where the remains of a large patrician Roman villa have been discovered. Wander the site and read about its history in the small museum. When you have finished exploring the town, take a gentle boat ride to some of the other Lake resort towns, such as Desenzano del Gardo. If you feel like something a little more exhilarating, try a high speed motor boat ride. A nearby attraction, designed for children, is the Gardaland theme park.
