Sirmione is located on the tip of a long peninsula which protrudes from the lake shore between Densenzano del Garda and Peschiera, and was my favourite lake town. It is very pretty with little shops, winding, cobbled streets and vibrant colours. Famous for it's thermal springs, this was a spa destination even in Roman times.

The photo above is of the thirteenth-century castle, the Rocca Scaligera that dominates the town. Al and the kids climbed to the top and got great views of the area.

It is advisable to visit out of season like we did as in summer it tends to be swamped with tourists. The day we visited was busy enough.
