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.

Castello Scaligero Reviews
Um castelo charmoso, pequeno. Andando em torno dele é possível bonitas fotos. Não entramos porque chegamos próximo horário de fechar. A fila não estava tão grande. Tem que pagar. Verifique. Informação... more »A charming, small castle. Walking around it is possible beautiful pictures. We didn't come in because we got close closing time. The line wasn't that big. You have to pay. Check. Information I found on the internet is that on Mondays it closes but it was open. Book a dinner in front of him. Great place.
Il castello e magnifico sia visto dal lago in barca e via terra con la passeggiata che costeggia il castello ...e una spiaggia da dove ammirare lo spettacolo ..... more »The castle and magnificent is seen from the lake by boat and by land with the walk that skirts the castle ... and a beach from where to admire the show .....
That is an amazing magic castle. There is lot of flowers everywhere and an ideal place for a wedding. Actually I have seen a preparation for wedding there. Highly recommend to visit and take a look from the tower - charming views. Other great idea is to take a boat and go around. You will not disappoint - there are calm and relaxed atmosphere, fresh breeze, views and amazing color of water.
Great place to visit. The entrance to the old city is impressive. Walking around the city has a romantic feeling and the nice beaches are full of tourists enjoying the clear blue water. During hot summer days it’s difficult to walk along the beaches and open areas due to the extreme heat and lack of shade. The enormous ice creams can partally compensate with that. And if arriving by car during the top season, get ready to spend at least an hour to find some parking...
