All reviews roman villa well worth a visit small museum lake garda olive trees interesting ruins roman ruin electric train amazing roman mini train archaeological site small train land train large area couple of hours wander around amazing views of the lake
This was a beautiful setting with interesting Roman ruins all around. Weather was perfect for viewing both the lake and the ruins. We rode the tram UP the hill to the ruins (highly recommended) but walked back down to town.
Although the rooms are empty and the wall decoration gone, enough has been preserved in the small museum attached to the site to indicate that it was a fantastic, beautifully painted place 2000 years ago. An attempt has been made to show what it would...More
This is quite a boring place unless you want to take scenic pictures of the views behind the attraction. The lake looks great from behind. The attraction has a museum and the architecture is just ruins
These are the ruins of an immense Roman villa on the tip of the peninsula on Sirmione.
This was the sight of a magnificent villa in it's prime overlooking the lake, well worth the time to explore if you have a love of Roman history
Very large villa with fine examples of Roman architecture. Visitors can get up close and really view the construction. Would like to see more detailed signage at most of the major points. Also helpful would be pictures with artistic renditions

I would definitely recommend walking along to the Grotte, it is a huge site and well-worth the visit. We walked all round it and couldn't believe the size of the place. It is all open-air and you can do whichever part you wish to do....More
We planned to visit this place on 02-Oct and due to it we change our day's plan to visit Sirmione first instead of last on the day at sunset time. It was closed...even if it was Tuesday and not Monday which should be the regular...More
The largest villa in N Italy..was enormous in its heyday. Now just ruins sitting on the Sirmione peninsula.
Amazing views over to Lake Garda
Leaflet explaining it's history.
Small museum with finds from archeological digs. Still working in site.

Hi Barbara, I’m so glad you asked. There’s a little train that takes you from the edge of the Medievil town to the ruins that gives you quick access and I would say minimum of two hours. I absolutely love Roman ruins and there so many picturesque places to take photographs and just enjoy, that I think two hours is probably enough but maybe give yourself a little bit more extra time. It was the highlight of my trip.
Thank you for asking, If I can be of any more help please let me know I’ve been there three times.
Ps as you pass through the town I think that castle there is worth visiting there is not a lot in it but it’s worth the visit I think. It’s not spectacular though. But the views are nice.
Everywhere you go it seems dogs are allowed but always on a lead and big dogs muzzled even though my experience has been that little dogs seem to be more in need! Most restaurants don't seem to mind even hotels although... More
