Salò, refreshed by the breeze coming from the protected gulf it overlooks, and Sirmione, lying along a peninsula extending towards the centre of the lake, are the most popular resorts on the southern coast of Lake Garda.
This motorboat excursion with driver departs from the port of Gardone Riviera, the Garden City: you will sail along the south-west coast of the peninsula to Salò, with its Art Nouveau villas overlooking the lake; you will then sail up towards the Island of Garda, with its imposing Villa Borghese-Cavazza, passing the Isola dei Conigli and the Rocca di Manerba. You will then head south towards Sirmione.
Of this historic city, you will first admire the Grotte di Catullo, within the intact archaeological park. During the circumnavigation of the peninsula, you can stop and dive at the spots that suit you best. With a final crossing of the lake, during which you can again admire the coastline and landscapes, you will return to Gardone.
During the crossing, you will be offered a bottle of wine accompanied by fresh fruit and background music chosen according to your preferences.
