After the departure from Verona we’ll drive to Sirmione, the “Pearl of the Garda” for its unique beauty: the town is at the end of a peninsula, in a portion of land isolated from the isthmus by a channel that becomes at the same time moat of the old medieval castle: the only crossing point is a small bridge. We visit by foot the center of Sirmione, with its narrow streets, its gardens, breathtaking views over the olive groves that slope down to the rocky coast. We will reach the end of the peninsula to enjoy unique views of the vast blue lake, with its crown of mountains and green hills.
In the afternoon we will leave from the picturesque small port with a private boat to admire Sirmione off its coast, a more complete view of the coastline and the impressive “Grotte di Catullo”, imposing ruins of the largest Roman villa in north of Italy. We then head to the west coast and enjoy the circumnavigation of the Island of Garda, the largest of the islands in the lake. The island is privately owned: its lush park and Venetian-style art nouveau villa will be very well visible from the boat. From here we will cross the lake to the east, and we will reach the east coast, also called “Olive Groves Riviera”, to land in one of the most fascinating places: Punta San Vigilio, between the Gulf of Garda and the beginning of the fjord-looking side of Lake Garda, the most alpine side. The Punta hosts an ancient old port with an inn, and a small cafe. During the ride back to Simrione we will offer you a fresh aperitif on board. At the end of the morning you will have free time for your shopping and for lunch.
