Grotte di Catullo

Buongiorno! I am a little red Bettinazzi ‘Il Trenino’! I live on the peninsula of Sirmione at the most north point of it. I’m here with my family, we are with 6 in total! Most of the time we don’t all work together because we are electric and sometimes we need a little recharging nap. When we do work, we bring tourists from the bottom of the hill to the top. What’s at the top? Well, the ruins of a villa called Grotte di Catullo. One day it used to be a 3 floor high villa with a beautiful view over the Lago di Garda. It was built between the end of the 1st century B.C. and the beginning of the 1st century A.D., that’s way before I was alive or even invented! Nowadays it is a museum and archeological site surrounded by a olive grove. You should come and pay a visit. I’ll take you up and down the hill! Ciao!
