Sirmione Boat Tour: discover the wonders of Lake Garda

Romantic, exploration or just fun: boat tours of Sirmione can satisfy all travellers' tastes, even the most demanding. In this magical location on Lake Garda, a peninsula surrounded by water known for its stunning views, you can admire historical architecture, parks and spend relaxing moments on the beautiful beaches. There are many things to do in Sirmione including activities on the lake, such as boat trips.

A boat ride can be an atmospheric experience, perfect for couples, but also for groups of friends who want to have fun on the lake. At the same time, these are also great activities for families who want to spend some time together, perhaps by exploring the area.

So, let's see which are the best destinations to see on a boat tour in Sirmione.

Sirmione Boat Tour: the most beautiful places to discover by boat

Breathtaking scenery, beaches, small villages, picturesque locations, historic residences and ancient villas with Italian gardens. Starting from the port of Sirmione - and nearby locations - one can reach beautiful places and appreciate the lake (and its setting) from a new point of view.

On the boat - selected among the Sirmione Boats activities - you can indulge your emotions, letting the wind caress your face, letting the waves gently carry you away and then immerse yourself in a fabulous landscape. But which are the most beautiful places to visit? Here is a selection.

1. From Gardone to Salò, discovering the south coast

Are you looking for suggestive places? Then a private, captained tour from the Gulf of Salò and Sirmione is perfect for you because it will take you along the southern coast of Lake Garda, which is full of picturesque and unspoilt places. From the port of Gardone Riviera (also known as the 'garden city' for the lush nature that surrounds it) you will proceed to Salò, Isola del Garda, Isola dei Conigli, and Sirmione, with its splendid Grotte di Catullo and archaeological park.

A journey in which you can stop at your favourite spots, dive into the waters of the lake and even eat on the motorboat, by requesting the additional lunch box service.

2. Punta San Vigilio and Garda, amidst villas and beautiful views

The Benaco encloses special places with unique views that can only be admired by boat. For example, with a private, captained tour to Punta San Vigilio and Garda from Sirmione you can reach Punta San Vigilio, home to the splendid Guarienti-Brenzone Renaissance villa. The view of this destination, reached via the lake, will leave you breathless, as will the Baia delle Sirene, surrounded by hundreds of centuries-old olive trees, and Garda, a small pearl surrounded by a mountainous relief overlooking the lake.

A voyage by lake, however, also includes stops ashore such as a visit to Garda, to stroll through the squares and alleyways of its charming old town, full of taverns and shops.

3. The Poets' Peninsula, romantic and evocative

Did you know that Sirmione is also known as the poets' peninsula? This is because its locations have captivated some famous writers such as Carducci, Joyce, Catullus and Goethe.

Places you can discover with a private tour with a skipper on the Poets' Peninsula at sunset. This is also a way to be captivated by the beauty of Sirmione by boat, admiring - in the special twilight light - the castle, the coves, the grottoes, the historic villas, as well as unique and unexpected views.

A perfect occasion to spend a magical time with family and friends or to celebrate a special occasion, such as a marriage proposal, anniversary, or birthday.

4. A boat trip to Sirmione, savouring the luxury of the Riva

Riva is a well-known brand that recalls the excellence of Made in Italy in the nautical field. Every boat that bears this name, in fact, is known for the quality of its raw materials, elegance and unparalleled craftsmanship. A private Riva excursion with a skipper, therefore, represents a unique moment to relive the splendour and emotions of the 'Dolce Vita', on board a luxury and timeless vessel.

The advantage? On the lake you can enjoy an aperitif with Franciacorta wine, fresh fruit and music in the background.

What to bring on a Sirmione boat trip?

No experience is required for a boat trip to Sirmione because the boat is always captained by a private skipper.

There are, however, a few things you should always carry with you. Ideally, they should be added to your backpack or bag:

  • a sun cream to protect you from UVA rays;
  • a bonnet;
  • an anorak or jumper.

Sirmione and surroundings: a boat trip to Desenzano (and other locations around Lake Garda)

In addition to Sirmione, there are many other locations on Lake Garda where boat trips can be booked, either by motorboat or by other means. For example, in Desenzano, on the south coast of the lake, one can take a captained sailing trip, while in Lazise, on the east coast, one can experience luxury and elegance by hiring a unique vehicle driven by an experienced skipper.
