Locations and venues
A modern, international atmosphere in the quiet of an ancient town. Hotel Catullo, founded in 1888, held the first public commerce licence in Sirmione and is one of Italy's historical hotels.
It takes its name from the famous poet born hereabouts, one of the young so-called “new” poets who made a lasting mark on Latin poetry, mainly with themes of eroticism and love. Several verses have become eternal - still cited throughout the world - and which return in elegant frescoes on the hotel walls and on various floors leading to the rooms.
The hotel has been owned by the Barelli family, which also manages Hotel Pace, for many years, and therefore offers consolidated hotelier tradition.
Family management combines a modern style, with careful attention to welcoming an international and demanding clientele.
