Sirmione was OK, nothing special. Stresa is better IMHO. It also has a far better ferry service!
Went to the roman villa but it had fallen down.
Had 4 trips to Verona on the local bus, 14 euros return for two of us, ridiculously cheap compared with home for a 20 mile journey.
The boss liked some other places better than Sirmione, eg, Salo, Garda.
Oh, and for the first week there, the weather was better at home than there!
