Sirmione, Lombardy, Italy -- Maria Callas (Μαρία Κάλλας) --arguably the greatest opera singer of the 20th century -- lived here -- between the congested old town of Sirmione and the Grotto of Catullus at the far northern end of the narrow peninsula. Trivia Question: where was this Italian star of Greek descent born? If you took Manhattan, you're right.
