This morning we will travel to Sirmione, one of the oldest towns in the area and famous for its medieval centre at the end of the peninsula. The moated castle has a lovely piazza where there are plenty of cafes to relax in with a cappuccino. From here we travel to San Martino della Battaglia for a short visit of the chapel which houses bones from the Battle of Solferino, the definitive battle between Italy and France against Austria in 1859. The chapel contains row upon row, column upon column of human remains in perfect order as if they were books in a library. In all there are 2,619 deceased here with 1,274 skulls. Following our fascinating insight into Italian history we travel to the nearby Trattoria da Arturo for a fabulous lunch before returning to Bardolino in the afternoon.
