Welcome in Sirmione

Sirmione. A land to discover. Chosen and loved by artists and poets of all times for its magical atmosphere and natural beauty, Sirmione welcomes you in the heart of Lake Garda with the charm of a thousand-year history, the well-being of its thermal baths, famous throughout Europe, the pleasure of a unique gastronomy and a tradition of honest and friendly hospitality. The traditional symbol of the Lake Garda in the world, the peninsula of Sirmione, loved and admired since antiquity, extends for 4 km in the heart of Lake Garda. The pile-dwelling settlements, the Grotte di Catullo, the Castello Scaligero, are evidence of the fascination that this area, visited and celebrated by artists and poets, has provoked throughout the ages. The high-end hotel facilities, the variety on offer for tourists, the presence of thermal water and the food and wine tradition, combined with the beauty of the place, make Sirmione a charming town to stay. The Grotte di Catullo allows you to admire the impressive remains of a Roman villa in an archaeological park of 20 thousand square metres. The impressive Rocca Scaligera was built for defence purposes: today the tower offers a breath-taking view. The main churches date back to the Lombard period, whereas the lively historic centre is characterised by narrow, charming streets and stone walls, which offer the visitors romantic and striking views. Do not miss the Passeggiata delle Muse that goes from the historical centre to the Lido delle Bionde: a very pleasant route that runs along the coast and leads to one of the most attractive beaches of the lower lake.
Sirmione is synonymous with thermal baths: Sirmione's thermal water has been known about since ancient times for its beneficial effects. Its valuable sulphurous water, containing sodium chloride, bromine and iodine is effective in the treatment of respiratory, vascular and skin diseases.
The food and wine of Lake Garda is based on three key traditional elements: the delicate oil produced across the river, the wine, called Lugana, and several species of fish, such as pike, carpione and perch.
