Treasure of Northern Italy: Sirmione

Are you searching for an outstanding destination to include in your Italy tour? Beautifully nestled on the end of the thin peninsula, Sirmione is a unique place that has already won the hearts of millions. Travelers from all over the world come here not only to explore the hidden wonders of the city but also for a glimpse of Lake Garda which provides stunningly dramatic views.

A must-see Sirmione attraction is the breathtaking Scaliger Castle which was constructed in the 13th century. Just imagine: surrounded by the nearby hills, a medieval fortress is rising from the waters guarding the peace of the city and its citizens. Sounds like a real fairy-tale, right?

Other local landmarks worth adding to your Sirmione tour are the dating back to the 15th century Church of Santa Maria and, of course, the marvelous Church of San Pietro which is well-known as the oldest cathedral in the city! What is more, this impressive structure is set on the cliff facing the beautiful lake, thus you have a fantastic opportunity to appreciate some genuinely awe-inspiring sceneries.

Apart from discovering the major Sirmione sights and enjoying water sports, save some time to treat yourself with local delicacies. One of the best places in the city for an unforgettable gastronomical experience is the Ca dei Fragile Vineyard, where you can taste not only some domestically produced wines but also learn more about the process of wine-making. What is more, if you are lucky to stay in Sirmione on Friday, make sure to visit the weekly market to sample even more local specialties!
