(1,900+ reviews on the web)
Castle Tourist Spot
Bordered on three sides by Lake Garda, Rocca scaligera originally served as a port defense for Verona's medieval lords. Visit the 13th-century castle that stands guard over the town of Sirmione and its peninsula to see rooms filled with artifacts. Admire the crenellated walls and impressive stone towers, as well as the moat and a drawbridge. You can climb to the top for views of the town, lake, and countryside. For a different perspective, take a boat tour on the lake; many include the castle on their itineraries. Add Rocca scaligera and other attractions to your Sirmione trip itinerary using our Sirmione holiday planner.
