Full description
Your tour will depart from the Scaligero Castle’s port. From here you will start sailing along the peninsula’s coast, where you will be able to see Maria Callas’s 1920s villa where she felt inspired to create many of her opera characters. You will also be able to observe the nearby thermal spa baths as well as the Aquaria Wellness Center, before spotting the place where the famous poet Catullus wrote many of his poems. You will also cruise past and discover the charismatic Roman villa known as the “Grotte di Catullo“. Afterwards, you can simply just look through the waves to discover the bubbles of the underwater Boiola Sulphur Spring, which provides thermal water to Sirmione. Finally, after admiring the architecture and perfect preservation of Sirmione Castle, you will have to "lower your head" to pass under the castle drawbridge before returning back to the port.

25 minutes in the sun on a boat that takes you around the "peninsula" of Sirmione. The boat was very nice and comfortable, the tour was interesting and the captain was very friendly to give us various information on the various stages we traveled. I highly recommend to everyone, perfectly timed (25/30 min), very honest cost and meeting point at the beginning of the center.

It was wonderful! Fantastically beautiful and the driver was personable, nice and humorous. Since the other guests traveling with us, almost all of them only Italians, the explanation was translated into English for us, which was completely fine. For the day when we booked the tour online, it had extremely thunderstorms and rain and therefore could not take the tour, but we were able to experience the tour the next day as an alternative ... we can warmly recommend it, we were thrilled ... Thank you for this great experience and the flexibility ...

The ride was pleasant and fun, Thank you to captain Marco. Great sense of humor and professionalism. The scenery was magnificent ... the tour saved a great deal of senseless walking and we could focus on the walking through the parts we wanted to see. The only part that could have been improved is a ticket collection. I bought the tour on-line and presented printed ticket as it was instructed upon boarding. Once we docked upon completion of the tour , I left and started walking away but was chased by a fellow with request to pay for the tour. I presented the ticket which was collected . Yet the trip aftertaste got some bitterness. To finish on a high note, it was a wonderful experience and I strongly recommend the tour.
