Had expected more of this. If you like history, it is worth to visit. Best on Sundays, access is free that day. If I had to pay for it, I would have regretted my money, I think. It was very hot that day, so maybe...More

Very extensive Roman ruins, with a museum, that give a good idea of the architecture of the time. Very interesting.

Fascinating Roman achievement set in a stunning location. The museum has many relics from the site. Just a short walk from the main town and has a small buggy train for those in need a lift (€1 return).

A very under-rated attraction in Sirmione hidden away right at the end of the peninsula. Well worth getting the combined £12 ticket that also gives you entry to the castle up by the entrance to the old town. There is a good museum at the...More

The ancient ruins are an impressive sight (and are quite substantial!) in a very commanding position with stunning views out over Lake Garda. It is not difficult to imagine how impressive this site will have been in its heyday. Well worth a visit both in...More
