Hotel Continental Wellness & 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.

Peace & quiet

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.

Traditional meets modern

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 typical Italian food.

Time to Relax

Our favourite feature of the hotel is the spa – it’s 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 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.

Look at a map of Lake Garda, and you’ll see a delicate peninsula unfurling from the southern shore. This is Sirmione – one of the most striking towns in the Italian Lakes. It packs a lot into that thread of land, too. Scaligero Castle is the photogenic crown, but there are also medieval lanes, a beach, Roman ruins, olive groves, thermal spas and a glut of gelaterie to explore – and all on traffic-free streets. Beyond the historic centre, you can continue with lakeside strolls along the promenade or board one of the many ferries that hop between the glimmering towns on Lake Garda’s shore.

Scaligero Castle: immerse yourself in history

Sirmione is framed by jewel-green water and spectacular views on three sides. A moat marks the entrance to the pedestrian-friendly historic centre at the end of the peninsula. Cross it to Scaligero Castle, which was designed to be an all-seeing defensive outpost for the Della Scala family, who ruled the Verona region in the 13th and 14th centuries. Climb all the way up to the balustrade and tower for a bird’s eye view of the terracotta-tiled, green-shuttered streets below. From here, you can also admire the brooding mountains on the more northerly shores of Lake Garda.

Walking away from the crowds

Most people visiting Sirmione are day-trippers who mill around the castle and harbour before going on their way. But by staying for a walking holiday in Sirmione, you’ll have the time to explore the whole 3km-long peninsula (and its famous gelato shops) at leisure. One of the best walks is over-looked by many visitors. Simply continue beyond the castle to the Roman ruins of Grotte di Catullo at the far end of the peninsula. Jamaica Beach sits below, accessed via a path through silvery olive groves.

From Roman spa town to luxury lake-view spas

The spa-loving Romans were the first people recorded to enjoy the waters of Sirmione. These days, weary wanderers can still soothe their legs with a soak in one of thermal baths. Sulphuric, iodine-rich water heats the lake-view pools of stylish spas to a balmy 36°C. For more in the way of relaxation, finish the day with dinner by the lake. For all it attracts day-trippers by the hundreds, Sirmione is a relaxed spot for a drink by the water on a lazy evening after the crowds depart.

Take to Lake Garda

Sailing boats glide across the lake, while canoes and paddle boards are available for hire if you prefer paddle power. Ferries and boat tours are a relaxed option for exploring the rest of Lake Garda. They make a beeline for Bardolino (home of the famous red wine), Garda (for Venetian architecture and prom walks), and Riva del Garda and Limone (pretty gateways to mountainous footpaths). You can even get to Verona in less than an hour by bus.
