Impressive lake surrounded by fishing villages such as Sirmione: its medieval castle and Roman villa have turned it into absolute star.
An hour from Milan
If you have the time and would like to get to know Milan's surroundings, you should visit Lake Garda. It is the largest lake in Milan and is just one hour from the city. The place is truly impressive. Around this lake are numerous little fishing villages, notably Sirmione. This little town is a small peninsula that juts out into the lake and has a medieval castle and a Roman villa. Without a doubt this is one of the main tourist destinations, especially in summertime, when you'll find it teeming with visitors. If you fancy a quieter option and you have a car, we recommend you drive until you reach one of the other nearby towns. Choose one that you like and visit it. Whether it be for its coves or for its food, they're worth visiting.
