The power of thermal water in one of the most beautiful places on Lake Garda
One of the best ways to enjoy all the beauty of Lake Garda is to treat yourself to a stay in Sirmione. The small municipality in the province of Brescia lies on the long peninsula surrounded by the waters of the lake, between the gulfs of Desenzano and Peschiera. It has been celebrated for its artistic and environmental beauty by writers such as Catullus, Stendhal and Goethe.
There are many reasons to discover Sirmione, starting with the internationally renowned spa centre at the tip of the peninsula. After a day dedicated to relaxation, you can explore another iconic place in Sirmione: the archaeological area of the Grotte di Catullo, preserving the remains of one of the largest residential villas in northern Italy.
Scaliger Castle, one of the best-preserved fortresses in Italy, symbol of the power the area acquired during the 13th century, stands in the heart of the historical centre. Beneath the castle walls, begins the Passeggiata delle Muse, a particularly romantic and evocative footpath.
For water sports enthusiasts, Sirmione is an excellent centre for sailing and windsurfing on Lake Garda. If you prefer relaxation in the sun, you will love the crystal-clear waters and white rocks of Jamaica Beach.
