Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Hotel Continental Thermae & Spa has it all – a prime lakefront position, superb facilities and excellent staff. It’s tucked away just outside the centre of Sirmione, which you can walk to in about five minutes. The location means it’s nice and peaceful so once you’ve spent some time in the hustle and bustle of the town you can head back here and chill out by the heated pool. The lake is just steps away and there’s a wooden jetty that gives easy access to the water.

Inside you’ll find a mix of traditional and modern. The rooms are comfy and spacious with side views over the lake from the balcony. Dinner's a real highlight with plenty of choice on the half board menu – it changes every day so you can try lots of different Italian food. It’s open for lunch too when you can dine on the lake-view terrace if the weather is good.

Our favourite feature of the hotel is the spa – it’s a modern and elegant and you'll feel instantly relaxed here. It’s open daily and free for guests so make sure you head there to check out the Finnish sauna, steam bath and chromo-therapy showers. You can access the outdoor thermal pool straight from the spa so it’s easy to spend a whole day here.

Transfer time: approx. 45 mins by coach from Verona airport.

Sirmione really has that wow factor. It’s one of the most distinguishable resorts on Lake Garda thanks to its fairy-tale like castle. You’ll need to cross the moat to get into the historic centre – get the camera ready for some great Instagram shots here. Once you’re inside the centre is traffic free and full of interesting shops, restaurants and bars. This is one of the best places on the lake to get gelato so grab a couple of scoops as you wander round and explore. Sirmione’s peninsula is only three kilometres long so you can easily walk the whole length. The centre is always busy but has a great atmosphere. If you head to the tip of the peninsula you’ll find beaches and an old Roman Palace. Sirmione’s a spa town so make sure you spend some time relaxing in the natural thermal waters too.

You’ll then stop off at Passa Pordoi and take in the incredible views from this 2,000-metre-high vantage point. Then there’s some free time to explore the terrain at your own pace, either by taking one of the trekking paths or simply enjoying an Aperol at a refugio and taking in the views. A stop off at the chocolate box town of Ortisei is included on the way back to your hotel as well as plenty of stops for photo opportunities in this awe inspiring landscape.

Verona (full day)

Verona is one of Italy’s most charming little cities.

The handsome city mixes its rich past and modern present with great style.
