Sirmione is on the tip of a peninsula that juts out into Lake Garda. We rode around the lake (see riding adventures) and found our hotel nestled in the old town facing out to the lake. It is a perfect place to spend the night. We headed out to see the 13th century castle, saving the roman ruins for the following morning. We walked through the old town which is quite reminiscent of Venetian architecture of the 15th century. For dinner we picked a place on the ...

There was only one solution to the problem of the ever-increasing heat around us: a gondola ride! We met Giorgio, a nice man who offered to take us through the watery streets of Venice (for a fee, of course). It was a welcome rest from the walking and it was a highlight of the day for all of us.
