Photographer's Note

What can you see in Sirmione from a trip boat?

In the main photo you can see the far end of the peninsula with impressive ruins of the Roman villa, called Grottoes of Catullus, belonging to the Latin poet Gaius Valerius Catullus (84 – 54 BC).

Workshop I - Sirmione Port, hotels and the Scaliger Castle (see my photo posted a few days ago)

Workshop II - one of the thermal spa (wellness) centers.

Sirmione is not only a tourist attraction, it is also a spa resort with mineral waters.
Source of the mineral water has a temperature of 69 degrees Celsius and is located 20 m below Lake Garda. The water contains sulfur, sodium and iodine. It is used to treat pulmonary diseases, skin diseases and rheumatism.
Simione has also villas where famous people lived, the yellow building visible near the spa resort is the villa of Maria Callas, a famous opera singer.
