Part of Sirmione stands on a peninsula which stretches out for about 4 km in the lower Lake Garda in the province Brescia. The town is an important spot for culture and spa tourism. The peninsula rises about 30 m above the Lake and offers a gorgeous panoramic view.

Sirmione is famous for the unique charm of its old town with narrow and irregular streets as well as for its thermal bath „Virgilio“ and the ruins of the “Catullus Grottos” the former villa of the poet “Catullo”.

The ruins of the largest and most important roman villa in northern Italy are located on the last of the three hills of Sirmione and cover an area of app. 2 hectares. The building covers three levels in former times from which only the retaining walls and some pillars survived. In the middle ages some of the houses in the city have been built with wall remains of the grotto.

The small museum next to the entrance is worth seeing. It contains important archeological finds like bronze objects, coins, sculpture fragments and remains of frescos.

Another important building is the Scaliger castle „Castello Scaligero“ with its merlons looking like dovetails constructed for the defence of the lower lake and the fleet.
