The views from here as well as the very interesting ruins make this a doubly good venue to visit. Walk up from the town and you pass beautiful flowers and gardens and the house Maria Callas lived in.

We went on a combined ticket (with the castle for €12). We took the little land train which we came across by accident near the Aquaria thermal spa. It was only €1 each (one way). We were surprised how big the place was and with...More

The ruins of a large Roman villa at the end of the Sirmione peninsula are well worth a visit. Visiting on the first Sunday of the month, our admission was free. While there was not extensive English language signage, there was enough to give you...More

This is an old Roman Ruin from the first century. It is on the Peninsular so gives you great views. Well persevered and a great insight into how the Romans lived.

6€ well spent to see amazing views over Sirmione and get a feel for the history of the area. Best saved for pleasant weather!

We visited fairly late in the day, so had a limited time to look around, but the views of the surrounding scenery alone (especially nearing sunset) was worth the entry fee. Being at the end of Sirmione, you get a clear view of everything. The...More

Amazing historical place, breathtaking views, olive tree gardens, much bigger than expected, was worth the walk, also little train car can take you there.

These ruins nestled among olive groves with a panoramic view of the sea finally made me realise the attraction Sirmione held for Tennyson and Ezra Pound. I could have spent all day here gazing at the lake through the grand arches or reading im an...More

Hi Barbara, I’m so glad you asked. There’s a little train that takes you from the edge of the Medievil town to the ruins that gives you quick access and I would say minimum of two hours. I absolutely love Roman ruins and... More
