Although the weather was alternately rainy and dismal, Sergio and Cristina, the charming owners of the Belvedere Hotel did their best to make our visit to Sirmione interesting and pleasant.
They knew when the castle of Sirmione and the Roman villa were closed and gave us tips on where to park. When it rained, they lent us an umbrella. When we wondered about walking around the lakefront, they offered us the use of free bicycles.
When we checked in, Sergio whipped up a wonderful cappuccino and a latte macchiato as welcome beverages, and he cheerfully toted our suitcases up the steps to the hotel. He gave us spot-on recommendations for a local restaurant and towns to see around the shores of Lake Garda.
I would go back there for their gracious hospitality, even if the Sirmione castle and Roman villa are now overrun by tourists so that they are no longer a pleasure to visit as they were decades ago (which I probably should have figured out).
