Escorted Rail Tours to Sirmione

Beautiful views by Lake Garda

The town of Sirmione is located at the southern end of Lake Garda, where the lakefront is almost sea-like - inviting beaches line the shores of the wide expanse of water. The picturesque town occupies a peculiar position on a thin and craggy peninsula jutting 4km into the lake. Surrounded on three sides by water, Sirmione is one of the most peaceful towns on Lake Garda.

Sirmione is a pleasure to discover; the town is bursting with history and charm, including the imposing Rocca Scaligera - a beautifully preserved 13th century castle surrounded by a large water-filled moat that dominates the Old Quarter of town.

Sightseeing in Grotte di Catullo
The Grotte di Catullo, the remains of one of the largest Roman villas in Italy, is another of Sirmione's most famous sights, while the town is home to Lake Garda's only thermal spring - you can easily spend a day pampering yourself and relaxing at the famous Aquaria Thermal Spa.

The historic centre of Sirmione is mostly pedestrianised, with its narrow winding lanes and pretty piazzas. A panoramic walk leads out around the promontory, and on a clear day you can enjoy great views over the lake and towards the mountains in the north.
