I plan to stay overnight with in Sirmione in September. I hope to get a bus from Verona to Sirmione and will be travelling with my husband and mother. I am looking for a 3* hotel that is relatively close to the walls so we do not have far to walk as I know there are traffic restrictions within the walls. Is the lake just past the walls or how far is it down the centre Ideally we would like to be in the city centre and see the lake is that possible? I dont think a lot of 3* have shuttles and they are quite expensive. I check with Cartullio/Marconi but they are booked out. Anyone know location wise what the following hotels are like it's just for one night but would like the centre/lake combo. Anyone know what Cristal, Abacus, Grifone and Alfieri are like location wise.
