This castle is situated at the start of the Sirmioni peninsula. Climb to the top of the tower for spectacular views over the peninsula and Lake Garda

I think we were hoping for a more spectacular thing inside but the payoff was the view it allows you of sirmione and of lake Garda. The interior has nothing much going on but when you get to the top and look out, you get...More
