Desenzano and Sirmione
From the terrace of our 4-star hotel on Lake Garda, you can admire the Sirmione peninsula in the distance, which we highly recommend visiting during your holiday. Desenzano and Sirmione are two enchanting towns nestled amidst stunning landscapes. The charm of the lake is enhanced by the historic and cultural flair of these medieval towns, the ancient spa tradition of centres such as Aquaria, and the picturesque markets full of souvenirs.
Desenzano del Garda
One of Lake Garda’s most important centres, Desenzano is home to monuments of historical importance, such as Ancient Roman relics, the castle dating back to the 11th century, the archaeological museum where the world’s oldest plough is preserved, and San Martino tower, a symbol of the Italian Risorgimento.
Called the “bright eye of peninsulas and islands” by poet Catullus, Sirmione has enchanted millions of visitors over the years with its historic centre characterised by lanes, archways, and houses made of stone enclosed within the walls of the imposing Scaliger castle. It has plenty of lush green areas and is surrounded by the blue of the lake. Today, it’s home to an internationally renowned thermal centre.
Sirmione’s Aquaria Thermal Spa is part of one of the most important thermal centres in Italy. The star is the sulphurous thermal water containing sodium chloride, bromine, and iodine, which is known for its valuable therapeutic properties. You’ll find harmony and balance while immersed in the thermal water with an enchanting view of Lake Garda.
This idyllic setting is crowned by our culinary tradition, which ranges from the art of winemaking to the production of extra-virgin olive oil.
So close to art
Desenzano is the perfect starting point for discovering the surrounding area as well as beautiful cities of art such as Verona and Venice, two of the Veneto region’s gems.
