Here is our list of the five best locations for taking great photos to post on your Instagram account.

 

01. The lush bougainvillea in the historic town centre

The most photographed site in Sirmione is by far the beautiful bougainvillea that blooms during the summer, between June and September, on the building on the corner of Via Vittorio Emanuele and Via Piana.

Its purple flowers are so intense that it immediately catches the eye, so it is impossible not to want take a picture every time you pass it!

02. Jamaica Beach

The ideal place to take photos if you love photos with exotic charm!

Jamaica beach is located at the tip of the peninsula, below the Grottoes of Catullus. You can reach it on foot or by a small electric train from the historic town centre. Enter through a gate located just before the entrance to the Grottoes of Catullus and follow the steep descent surrounded by olive trees.

05. “Kiss me, Please!”

Don’t forget to take a photograph in front of the “Kiss, Please” sign found on a terrace, behind the church, overlooking the castle and the lake.
