You'll have free time to explore the narrow streets lined with impressive medieval and Renaissance buildings in Verona's historic center.The beautiful lakeside towns around Lago di Garda have charmed foreign visitors for centuries. The area was a summer resort area for the ancient Romans, and in Sirmione and Desenzano you can visit the ruins and mosaics that record their presence.The pretty town of Sirmione is on the southern shore of Lake Garda, perched on the end of a long promontory.
