Mantua The Essential
Recommended
With its back to the slow-flowing River Mincio, which spreads out into three lakes encircling the town, Mantua is proud of its distinctive identity that can be tasted in the local cuisine. Former capital of the Gonzaga family, enlightened patrons of the arts, the city became the main artistic and intellectual centre of northern Italy and this rich heritage, whose traditions continue today, has made it a Unesco World Heritage Site.
