Sightseeing in Lake Garda

Historic Site
“Poet, soldier, hypochondriac and proto-Fascist, Gabriele d’Annunzio (1863–1938) defies easy definition, and so does his estate. Bombastic, extravagant and unsettling, it’s home to every architectural and decorative excess imaginable and the decor helps shed light on the man. In the 1920s d’Annunzio became a strong supporter of Fascism and Mussolini, while his affairs with wealthy women were legendary. The amphitheatre is the first major structure one comes across after entering the estate and was clearly based upon classic models, the architect Maroni even visiting Pompeii for inspiration. Its location, like the other buildings of the Vittoriale undeniably offers a majestic view of the Garda lake, it is still used for performances today (Patty Smith, The National, Buena vista social club)”

“Questo straordinario posto è un Museo a cielo aperto: vedrai le rovine di una tra le più splendide case costruite dai Romani tra la fine del I secolo a.C. e il I secolo d.C. You'll see one of the most beautiful ruins of Roman house, it seems to be of Catullo, one of the most famous Roman poet. Amazing view of Garda Lake!”

“dopo avere visitato il centro storico di Sirmione , proseguendo avanti si entra in ampio parco con dei sentieri che portano alle Terme di Catullo poste proprio sulla punta della penisola . La vista è mozzafiato , si può osservare tutto il Lago di Garda ed inoltre è possibile visitare le storiche Terme di Catullo costruite durante l' antico Impero Romano. Da non perdere”
