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 one the pools. There’s two to choose from and one is thermal so it can be enjoyed all season. 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 décor. The rooms are comfy and spacious with side views over the lake from the balcony. Dinner is a real highlight with lots 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 space where you feel instantly relaxed. 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

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.
