At the Hotel Olivi and Natural Spa you'll feel at home as soon as you step into the lobby and meet the welcoming staff.

Relaxing location in central Sirmione

The hotel sits at the end of Sirmione’s peninsula, which means it’s within easy walking distance of the historic centre but still feels nice and peaceful. The fragrant olive and cypress trees that surround the hotel add to the tranquil feel. Grab a lounger under the shade of an olive tree and enjoy a relaxing day next to the saltwater pool. There’s a poolside restaurant to keep you refreshed and full all day. If you’re after even more relaxation, treat yourself to a day in the spa. They have sensory showers, a Turkish bath and an indoor pool. End the day in the bar which serves up some great cocktails, before you heading for dinner.

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.
