SIRMIONE, THE ISLE OF A THOUSAND KISSES

Sirmione might just be the location on the Garda Lake where the most kisses are sweetly given on a daily basis by square meter. Probably Catullus (87 BC-54 BC), the Latin poet native to this land, would have lent himself to becoming the testimonial of a Sirmione – city of the “kiss”, thinking about his beloved Lesbia to whom he had dedicated these verses:

 

(...) Give me a thousand kisses, then a hundred, then another thousand, and a second hundred, then a thousand and a hundred over and over again, then when we will have kissed that many thousand times, even we will not know how many, and no one who wishes us ill because he is envious, can hold against us the kisses he cannot count.

Catullus citation, Song 5

The report of Sirmione

Sirmione and Verona are the two destinations which the majority of tourists do not want to miss upon their visit to the Garda Lake.

It’s almost a useless exercise to seek out free parking. The white strips are located various kilometres away from the centre. Parking is almost exclusively at a cost, and it’s also a bit dear (€2.20 for 1 hour).
