Hotels in Sirmione
Located on the southern end of Lake Garda, Sirmione hotels offer breathtaking views of the historical region of Brescia in Lombardy and Italy's largest and most beautiful lake.
Sirmione has a history that reaches back into the Stone Age, but it was in the 1st century BC that the area surrounding the lake grew in popularity as a destination for rich families travelling from nearby Verona. The strategic position of Sirmione meant that during the late Roman era it became an important fortification for defending the southern end of Lake Garda. The subsequent turbulent history of northern Italy meant that the town changed hands a number of times, including rule under the Lombards, the Scaliger, the Venetians, the Habsburgs and the Italians.
One of the most impressive historical attractions in Sirmione is the Scaliger Castle, built during the 13th century by the Scaliger fleet and a rare example of a medieval port fortification. The castle is surrounded by water and is well worth visiting during your stay. Another key site is the Grotto of Catullus, set on the northern tip of Sirmione. This ruined Roman villa dates from the 1st century AD and is the largest of its kind in northern Italy. There are also a number of historical churches in Sirmione, including the 12th-century Sant'Anna della Rocca, the 14th-century San Pietro in Mavino and the 15th-century Santa Maria Maggiore.
The largest lake in Italy, Lake Garda is a very popular destination for visitors to the country. In Sirmione there are luxury spa complexes, including the Terme di Catullo, which uses the mineral-rich water of the lake and offers a range of health and beauty treatments. Travel along the west bank of the lake and you'll find a number of picturesque towns and villages, including Solarolo, Salo and Gargnano. On the east edge you'll find Brenzone, Garda and Lazise – all of which offer cosy cafés and stunning panoramic views. To the north of the lake in the province of Trentino you'll find the Gruppo del Baldo Mountains.
To the east of Sirmione is the ancient city of Verona, the third largest city in northeast Italy. Definitely worth making a trip to visit, Verona is home to a plethora of restaurants, museums and bars, as well as a large amount of historical attractions, including the Basilica of San Zeno, the Scaliger-era Castelvecchio and the Gothic Scaliger Tombs.
