It's very characteristic, there are a lot of shops and the castle is worth visiting. You can to take a boat tour of the lake. There is beautiful scenery, especially towards the north where not all motorised boats are allowed. It's a good place to go sailing and rowing.

Unfortunately I just passed through and I couldn't fully enjoy its beauty, but Sirmione is nothing short of fabulous! Only by seeing it in the flesh will you understand why the Latin poet Catullus didn't want to leave it ... it really is the "Pearl of Lake Garda"!

Sirmione is on a peninsula wedged into Lake Garda and can be considered one of the many places of great interest that overlook the lake. Both on the eastern and western bank there are many towns and villages that are not to be missed, starting north from Riva del Garda and going down to Torri del Benaco, Garda, Lazise, Peschiera, Desenzano and so on.

You get the classic northern Italian spring. It's a good idea to take a sweater and wind jacket in case of rain. On sunny days you can also wear short sleeves, anyway dressing in layers is ideal for this destination: I also recommend a scarf in case of wind.

You can go to Sirmione all year round. The accommodation is very comfortable and the lake environment has a climate that facilitates all kinds of activities throughout the year. There are good spa services that I went to, they're accessible and can be used by people of all ages. The services offered by the hotels in the area are just as good.

The best time is spring. For the longer days, the ideal climate, the clear landscape. Geographically the location is perfect, it's close to the most beautiful resorts of Lake Garda and Veneto. It's of important historical interest, you can easily use the thermal areas and the lake, and you can do water sports or simply swim.

You can go to the baths day and night. Closeby there's Gardaland and a lot of other theme parks worth visiting both in winter and in summer. There's a wide variety of activities for tourists and lots to see. The town is small but well organised in terms of infrastructure, shops, restaurants etc, you must go!!!! And I think the thermal parks are the best in the area.

The town is romantic and rich with natural beauty. You should definitely go! It's hard to park and most car parks charge quite a lot... if it's a beautiful sunny day, my advice is to park far away from the centre (for free), then walk towards the heart of the town.

There is little choice for people like me who are vegetarian or vegan! We're a bit tired of the usual chips and sandwiches with mozzarella and tomatoes ... So basically, I've already told you what you can eat, and besides that, the prices are a bit high, even for a place full of tourists. We are tourists, but nobody likes to be ripped off!

I hope it will be easier to go to the city of Sirmione in the future, for example for those staying in Colombare, where you go for Terme Virgilio, because it's hard to travel by car, although there are enough parking spaces (most for a fee).

It's a quiet and friendly town with a magnificent lake and the food is delicious. People are very friendly and polite. There are beautiful places to see and you can go on boat trips on Lake Garda. It's very safe and clean. The hotels aren't all wonderful but there are a few above the norm. Hotel Olivi is superb.

Sirmione can be described as a commune located in ‘province of Brescia’, in Italy’s northern part, i.e. Lombardy.
Sirmione has been bounded by the other communes such as Peschiera del Garda and Desenzano del Garda which lie in provinces of Veneto and Verona respectively. This place houses a ‘historic center’ located on petite peninsula which goes on to separate Lake Garda’s lower part.
The very-first traces with regards to presence of humans in region of Sirmione can be dated back to sixth-fifth millennia BC. Settlements on ‘palafitte’ existed in third ... More and second millennia BC.
Beginning from the first century BC, this region of Garda, inclusive of what’s now Sirmione; went on to become the most sought-after resort with respect to rich families who used to come from Verona. Later on, it became major Roman city within Italy’s north-eastern part.
In the year 1860, Sirmione became portion of ‘Kingdom of Italy’.

It's a very small city, you can have a complete tour around the city in no more than 1 hour .. nice antiques are sold in Sirmione shops .. not a very nice place!
