Sirmione is one of the jewels not only of Lombardy but also of the whole Lake Garda area. Located at the southern end of the lake, Sirmione is a small town that's bursting with character. Visitors flock there not only for its thermal water but also the Rocca Scaligera, a turreted fortress that marks the town's entrance. Walk across the stone bridge of the fortress and you reach the medieval centre of the village with its pretty churches and scenic little piazzas where you can climb the castle steps to admire the views across the lake's azure blue water.
