Walking & sailing at Sirmione

Everybody knows Sirmione! It’s a romantic lakeside village famous for its natural setting, SPA centres and monuments, such as Catullo’s Grottoes and Rocca Scaligera. The best way to enjoy a complete tour of this tourist destination is the alternation of walking and sailing; you will circumnavigate the whole strip of land overlooking Lake Garda and you will stroll along the narrow streets and the cute squares of the historical centre!

Meeting with a licensed private tourist guide at Sirmione. Because of its enviable position at the end of a peninsula, stretching out into the lake, and the charming views of its old centre, Sirmione is one of the most popular tourist destinations of Lake Garda, chosen and loved by artists and poets of all ages for its charming atmosphere and beauty. A mini-cruise by private taxi-boat in order to enjoy a tour of the peninsula overlooking Maria Callas’s villa and the archaeological site of Catullo’s Grottoes. Stop at Fonte Boiola to admire the bubbles of an underwater spring that flows from the bottom of the lake, after overtaking the Medieval Castle and passing under the bridge entrance of the village. A short walking guided tour of the historical centre, entering the striking medieval village, protected at its entrance by an elegant fortress, called Rocca Scaligera. Visit to the castle, built by the Scaligeri family from Verona and one of the best preserved in the area. Time at your leisure for individual lunch and shopping. In the afternoon guided visit to Sirmione’s main attraction: Catullo’s Grottoes, the most outstanding Roman archaeological site in northern Italy. That villa dates back to I century A.D. and it was wrongly thought to be the summer resort of Catullo, a well-known poet from Verona. That stunning lookout over the lake offers unparalleled views.
