The Caves of Catullus, the church of S.Pietro in Mavino, the Scaliger Castle, Callas Palace...the Historical interest of Sirmione is equal to its touristic and landscape interest.
The particular conformation of this strip of land surrounded by water and, to the north, consisting of the three hills Cortine, San Pietro in Mavinas, the "Grotte di Catullo," has made this peninsula a resort for high-ranking families, already in Romanesque times.
On the hill known as the "Catullus Caves" stand the ruins of the Roman villa (1st century AD), which legend attributes to the poet Catullus, who lived in the 1st century BC. The "Catullus Caves" constitute the most impressive archaeological area in northern Italy. But Sirmione is not only history and nature; a hot sulfurous thermal spring, the Bojola, which gushes from the seabed 250 meters from the eastern shore makes it one of the best-known thermal and healing resorts.
And last but certainly not least, Sirmione is rich in tourist attractions such as beaches, markets, and shopping.
