Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Hotel Sirmione is right on the lakefront in the centre of Sirmione. That means the town’s cobbled streets, fairytale-like castle and numerous gelateria are right on its doorstep. It’s been open since 1890 and is known for its spa. The indoor pool, sauna, Jacuzzi and sensory showers are yours to use at your leisure when you stay here. Or, book in for a treatment in one of the new cabins. If the weather’s warm, make sure you head to the outdoor pool which has some spectacular views of the lake. It's heated using the town's thermal waters.

You can’t stay here without enjoying a cocktail or two on the lakeside terrace. Pull up a chair next to the water and sip an Aperol Spritz as you watch the sunset. The views are unrivalled! Inside the décor is fairly modern – expect wooden floors in the rooms and neutral colours throughout. Most rooms come with charming views over the piazza, too.

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.
