unless you live in an arc of 30 km north or south from Sirmione (in which case you should already know which is the fastest way), the most suitable way to get to Sirmione is the A4 motorway (Milan-Venice) .
There is a Sirmione toll booth, with fairly clear indications on how to get to the historic center, or, if you come from the West (Milan) you could also exit at Desenzano and then take the "tangenziale", a two-lane but fast-flowing way, to exit then at the Sirmione signal, where the road rejoins the one exiting the highway. Less advisable is, for those coming from the East (Venice), exit at the Peschiera toll booth: there is a ring road but rather busy and the stale road it is long and with several traffic lights and speed cameras. For information on highway traffic (and weather conditions) you can consult the company's website (with useful webcams): http: //www.autostrade.it/
During the summer, we advise you to leave your car at home and reach us by public transport, the streets are always very crowded and the car parks are expensive.
The Grifopaking car park offers shuttle service on the day of check-in and check-out and is located in about 400 meters from the entrance of the historic center, it costs € 20 per day, from 12 to 12.00 the next day (this parking must be booked in advance through our hotel, after having prepaid the service we will communicate your code in order to access in the reserved area).
The best advice to avoid queues and excessive parking payments (in Sirmione it costs around € 2.20 per hour on the blue stripes and € 16 per day Piazzale Montebaldo) is to park in the hamlet of Colombare di Sirmione, there there are various areas where you can leave your car safely even for several days and absolutely free, you can then reach the historic center with the convenient shuttle that shuttles every 15 minutes between Sirmione c within and Colombare;
The ride price is 1 €
Indeed there are also free parking spaces at 400 meters from the castle, in via Lungolago armando Diaz, from the height of the Barracuda Bar to the end of the road, clearly they are very coveted places, you will be sure to park here only in the morning, early, and in the evening, after dinner. Last information about the parking lots: when the village is saturated and as a result the parking spaces end, the local police block the cars about 3 km before the center, at the height of the cemetery, right in front of a shuttle stop for Sirmione and another unattended parking lot, uncovered and paid.
