The roman villa called the Grotte di Catullo.
Then the boat will go towards the natural reserve of Rocca Manerba: the cliffs are covered with forest and overhanging over the lake. Olive groves, flocks of thrushes, swallows and swifts make an indelible impression.
Proceed to the small island of San Biagio which also brings the name of «rabbit island», a natural extension of the mainland.
We will continue towards the Island of Garda to admire the sumptuous Palazzo dei Conti Borghese-Cavazza (which recalls the elements of style of the Doge’s Palace in Venice).

Let's go on the way back to Sirmione. Going to the peninsula, we will feel a characteristic smell and among the waves we will see the bubbles that indicate the place of the thermal spring of Bojol Boiola.
After admiring the architecture and perfect preservation of Sirmione’s castle, we will have to lower our heads to pass under the drawbridge of the castle and return to the port of departure.
