Create an itinerary including Castello Scaligero
Bordered on three sides by Lake Garda, Castello Scaligero originally served as a port defense for Verona's medieval lords. Visit the 13th-century castle that stands guard over the town of Sirmione and its peninsula to see rooms filled with artifacts. Admire the crenellated walls and impressive stone towers, as well as the moat and a drawbridge. You can climb to the top for views of the town, lake, and countryside. For a different perspective, take a boat tour on the lake; many include the castle on their itineraries. See Castello Scaligero and all Sirmione has to offer by arranging your trip with our Sirmione visit planning app.

  • The most beautiful sunset that I have seen in my life! What an amazing experience! The castle is not that big so it is really easy to walk around and see every part of it. Totally recommend the entrance, the view you have from up there is incredible!
  • We were actually staying in a hotel inside the castle. When you arrive and walk thro' the main gate it's like a fairytale. With the narrow streets, beautiful food in the restaurant's and beautiful things in the shops. We were even treated to a lighting storm whilst we were here. Amazing. Well worth a visit or even better stay in a hotel here.
