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.

Hello everyone, the activity was very nice and everything was explained well. We were very upset about the price. We paid 48 euros for 4 people (children's discounts not possible). On site then the prices: 10 euros for adults and 5 euros for children. So we paid 18 euros more. For what exactly? So we cannot necessarily recommend pre-booking through you. How can there be such differences? We would be very interested in an answer!

The boat trip was amazing, even if the weather was not perfect you could feel the magic of the place. The guide gave us some information about the place in both English and Italian. Due to transport issues we were late and the crew allowed us to get on the next tour so that was great of them .

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.
