Italy ‘s Lake Garda needs no introduction: surrounded by picturesque and colorful towns, this lake is one of the most popular destinations in Italy. We at Dragonfly Tours will take you to discover some of the must-see towns. Our journey starts from Torri del Benaco, the smallest town along the shores of Lake Garda. Here you will be welcomed by a delightful port, a promenade and an amazing view of the Scaligero Castle and why not, a stop in Bardolino: the area is famous for its vineyards where its namesake wine is produced, the Bardolino Rosso.
Our walk takes us to Limone sul Garda, one of the most chic destinations of Lake Garda located along the Brescia side of the lake. Here you can see the cultivation of lemon and citrus fruits: don’t miss the opportunity to visit the stone greenhouses where the fragrant citrus fruits grow. The beauty of this town has remained etched in the minds of great authors such as Goethe, who described it in his essay Viaggio in Italia. While you are in Limone, don’t forget to visit the Church of San Rocco, from whose terrace you can enjoy a spectacular view of Lake Garda and take a souvenir photo of your stay here.
Sirmione: The Pearl of Lake Garda
During your exploration of Lake Garda you cannot miss a stop in Sirmione, a town rich in history, culture and charm. Once you arrive in this picturesque town you may well ask yourself what there is to see in Sirmione. Well, our virtual tour starts with the Scaligero Castle, one of the most striking features present. The castle, built in the 13th century, is one of the best preserved Italian historic residences. Its architecture is characterized by three towers with one of them standing majestically in the center. The castle of Sirmione dominates the town and Lake Garda, offering one of the most romantic belvederes.
Behind the castle there is a small beach where you can relax and contemplate the view of Lake Garda.
Let’s continue our tour in Sirmione. Imagine the sunset on Lake Garda, isn’t it romantic? A boat ride is one of the most popular activities to do in Sirmione, especially at the end of the day when the warm rays of the sun take on the most intense shade of orange.
After a boat ride, it’s time to wander through the narrow streets of Sirmione and enjoy the charm of the medieval old town. Here you can stop and enjoy an ice cream, or have an aperitif in one of the numerous night spots that are located in the town center. At the end of the peninsula of Sirmione we find the Grotte di Catullo, a Roman villa dating back to the beginning of the 2nd century BC. The remains of this villa are well preserved and will allow you to see up close the great architectural skill of the Romans with its complex labyrinth of corridors and arcades. Not surprisingly, the villa is one of the most impressive examples of a Roman noble residence in northern Italy.
