Create an itinerary including Castello Scaligero
Bordered on three sides by Lake Garda, Castello Scaligero 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. See Castello Scaligero and all Sirmione has to offer by arranging your trip with our Sirmione visit planning app.

  • One of the most beautiful and ancient tourist sites I've visited. It's pretty awesome in the summer. Tourist. Luxurious cars. Fun seekers. Well laid out streets.
  • Beautiful castle with loads of shops, restaurants and ice cream shops inside. Some lovely quiet little alleys to sit and watch the water of the lake from. Quite crowded and some parts were difficult to walk through because of the amount of people plus cars trying to drive through. Would still recommend for a nice stroll
