Scaligera Castle is a remarkably well preserved ancient fortress at the entrance to Sirmione town on the southern bank of Lake Garda. The drawbridge beside the castle gives access to the walled town. Is has a moat and battlements and a tower which can be climbed giving wonderful views over the whole town, surrounding countryside and the lake.

This is the center of activity on Sirmione. It is a wonderful place for people watching and enjoying the ducks around the castle.

The castle is remarkably well preserved, and the stairs to the parapets and towers are solid, wide, and not terribly taxing. But a lot of them. It is absolutely worth the climb, especially on a clear day when you can see the mountains to the north. Wonderful!

The castle itself is not very spectecular. You can not enter any of the rooms and the main attraction is the walkway around the castle at the top of the walls. It requires a firm climb of the stairs, but it is worth the effort. The walk way offers a great view over the peninsula and the lake, with the ancient harbour. Do the extra effort and climb the extra stairs to the tower. The view is even more spectecular.

This Castle is by far one of the best preserved castles I have evner visited. The tourist board haven't done much to inform around the Castle , so bring a guidebook!
