sunset - Sirmione

Sunset over the lake

Early mornings when sunrise and early evenings when sunset is the part of the ay I like the most. I was sitting on the top of the peninsula of Sirmione, where the Grotte of Catullo is situated, enjoying in the panorama of the lake and waiting for the sunset. There was nothing around me to disturb the idyllic scene of the lake, exept for this solitary boat.

The church's park - Sirmione

The church's park

The Park

This cute little park with lots of greenery and interesting statues is situated right behind the St. Maria Maggiore. You can miss it when walking along the main promenade of the town. I suppose it is assigned to the local priest excusively, since it is closed fot the public visitors.
