Old Marina (Porto Vecchio di Sirmione)
The Castle of Sirmione was probably born on the ruins of an ancient Roman fortification and was intended to defend the village and control the port. Today you can access the castle only through the drawbridge, entered the castle leads to the main courtyard, rectangular, surrounded by high walls and corner towers.
The dock that you can admire today is probably the one built by the Republic of Venice, modeled on the Arsenal of Venice, which replaced the previous old wooden dock.
Inside there is a portico that houses a Roman and medieval lapidarium, along a staircase and a drawbridge you enter the second enclosure and go up to the walkways on the walls from where you can admire an overall view of the imposing and fascinating dock, shelter of the Scaliger fleet.
