Brush up on your Italian
My mother lived in Italy for 7 years and had never been to Lake Garda. She was completely enchanted with Sirmione, which I had picked myself. The shopping was very reasonable and the food as well. Service was excellent and very attentive. They were just nice, friendly people. You do need to use your Italian, which I wanted to have a chance to practice anyway. Many people asked us how did we discover Sirmione. There were almost no Americans there. There seemed to be a good bit of Germans. The beautiful flowers all over the buildings and how clean it was. Like it was the perfect Italian town.
Also we loved the Aquaria spa and laying out by the lake at the spa in the beautiful surroundings enjoying our summer cocktail. We paid $32 Euro to stay for 5 hours which was well worth it. Make sure you get a sun bed, a chair to lay out in.
