Lake Garda – Sirmione, Italy

Apologies for being a little behind on the blog posts. My internet connection here in Italy has been a bit wonky. We made one more stop on the way to our hotel in Venice at Lake Garda in Sirmione. The weather was warm and sunny, so there were a lot of people out enjoying the sun. Apparently this is a popular place for Italians to go for vacation and is the largest lake in Italy.

We mostly wandered on the beach and ate gelato. There were several swans wandering around the beach as well. It was kind of funny because these swans had no fear whatsoever of humans. One of them walked right up to a little girl and put its face right in front of hers. Before getting back on the bus, I decided to check out the Scaliger Castle. I climbed to the top of the tower where there was a really nice view of the lake. Note to self: don’t wear flip flops and a dress the next time climbing a 13th century castle tower!
