What you can visit: Desenzano, a open book
Desenzano and Lake Garda: in the heart and in the history of Europe, where customs
and cultures meet and blend together. A famous Riviera, set between the Alpine
snows and the Mediterranean sun, caressed by a unique, mild climate all year round.
This land, which was formed by thousands of years of glacial activity, still bears
the traces of prehistoric man, of Roman colonisation, the passage of the Celts
and the Venetian culture, of France and of Central Europe. Time has stood still
on the shores of the lake and has fixed memories and emotions of a past which
is recalled every day in the works of art, in the rich museums, in the precious
monuments on the corners of the streets of Desenzano. Roman remains, Middle-age
fortresses, old parish churches and Renaissance paintings frame a centre which
is rich in history, art and culture. Important confirmation of the most important
historical eras can be found in Desenzano, starting with the Civic Archaeological
Museum, which houses a plough from 2000 B.C. (the oldest to be found to date),
the Roman Villa with its mosaic floors and the relics housed in the Antiquarium.
The Castle, from the High Middle Ages, and the Cathedral, which houses some precious
paintings, such as Tiepolo's "Last Supper", are both very interesting.

The beauty of the location, the pleasantness of the countryside, the mild climate,
the remains of a great Roman villa - the "Grotte di Catullo" - and the sulphurous
water spring which supplies a very active, well equipped, spa complex have all
contributed to the fame of Sirmione. The accommodation facilities are rich and
varied. The Conference centre, harbour facilities, sports centres, splendid surrounding
countryside and the easy access to the nearby fun parks of Lake Garda make Sirmione
attractive to tourists of all ages.
What you can visit: Sirmione, la perla del Lago
Alla fama di Sirmione hanno concorso insieme l'amenità del luogo e lo splendore
del paesaggio, la dolcezza del clima, i resti di una grandiosa villa romana -
le "Grotte di Catullo" - e la sorgente di acque solforose che dà vita ad un attivissimo
complesso termale modernamente attrezzato. Ricca e variegata la struttura ricettiva.
Centro congressi, infrastrutture portuali, centri sportivi, uno splendido entroterra
e la vicinanza con i più significativi luoghi di divertimento e svago del lago
di Garda rendono Sirmione interessante per i turisti di tutte le età.
