Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.
Sirmione streches out on a strip of land that exendes for four km into the southern side of Lake Garda: upon entering the town you soon come up against the medieval Scaliger Castle with its tower and crenellated defensive walls that protect a well preserved historical port. After a beautful stroll along the path that encompasses the center at the far end of Sirmione, in a position overlooking the lake, comes as a surprice the Catullo Caves built between the first century B.C. and the beginning of the first A.D., the remains of the private patrician Roman Villa which belonged to the Latin poet.
