The Vittoriale degli Italiani is the monumental citadel built on the shores of Lake Garda by the poet Gabriele D'Annunzio, and is about an hour from the Villa. The park becomes “a book of living stone” to quote the words of the great poet which, step after step, page after page, reveals details and analogies with the literary works. The Vittoriale is a perfect choice for day trips in the area around Sirmione. And the Hotel Palace Villa Cortine is an ideal starting point for artistic and cultural excursions around Lake Garda.
There is nothing easier than to take an excursion by boat, enjoy lunch and a
guided tour of Sirmione, Desenzano and Salò, turning the day into a never-to-be
forgotten experience. And the Palace Villa Cortine, a hotel near Lake Garda, also has a fascinating
history. In fact he name Villa Cortine dates back to the end of the 1800s when Count Kurt Von Koseritz purchased the 5-acre park and, in 1898 the façade
of the Villa, was admired for its pure neo-classical style and large columns.
Precious marbles from Verona were brought to the site on barges across the lake
and the villa also has handsome frescoes and stained glass work. A charming setting for your stay surrounded by history on an itinerary of art, memories and nature.
