unless you live within 30 km north or south of Sirmione (in which case you should already know which is the fastest route), the best way to get to Sirmione is the A4 motorway (Milan-Venice).

There is a toll booth in Sirmione, with fairly clear indications on how to reach the historic centre, or, if you are coming from the West (Milan) you could also exit at Desenzano and then take the two-lane but fast-moving "tangenziale" to then exit at the Sirmione sign, where the road rejoins the one leaving the motorway.

On the other hand, it is less advisable for those coming from the East (Venice) to exit at the Peschiera tollbooth: there is a ring road but it is quite busy and the state road is long and has several traffic lights and speed cameras.

For information on motorway traffic (and weather conditions) you can consult the motorway company website (with useful webcams):

We are inside the historic center, in the ZTL, WE DO NOT HAVE CAR PARKS inside the structure but 2 MOTORCYCLE PLACES, so if you arrive by motorbike you can, with prior agreements and circular authorization, park in the ZTL.
