Did we take the wrong turn? And end up in Germany? Tad disappointed with Sirmione – seemingly the German tourist capital of Italy. Even the restaurants have German translations. While our hotel is very pretty and the outlook pleasant, there is not much to give Sirmione a big tick for – certainly by comparison to the Lake Como district. After a visit to the town, which comprises lots of tourist outlets, designer labels and ‘chain’ restaurants, it looks like tomorrow may be a day for lounging around the pool and getting some sun, which in itself is not a bad thing!
A few photos of Sirmione.
