The beautiful lakeside towns around Lago di Garda have charmed foreign visitors for centuries. The area was a summer resort area for the ancient Romans, and in Sirmione and Desenzano you can visit the ruins and mosaics that record their presence.
The pretty town of Sirmione is on the southern shore of Lake Garda, perched on the end of a long promontory. Sirmione's beautiful setting was praised by the Roman poet Catullus. The town's narrow medieval streets bustle with color and life, and its most striking feature is the moated castle, Rocca Scaligera. Take a wander through a ruined Roman villa and admire archaeological finds - including a charming carving of rabbits in the small museum.

Verona has a lot more to see than just the R and J balcony.
Sirmione castle is cute but we ran out of time shopping so could not try the gelato by the castle.

Great trip! Verona is a lovely city. Our guide was courteous and informative. I strongly recommend a visit. We also enjoyed visiting Lake Garda and the boat tour..
