SURROUNDED BY water, IMMERSED IN art and culture: A RENAISSANCE TREASURE TROVE
Mantua is the treasure trove of the Italian Renaissance. A city of culture surrounded by water. Palazzo Te, the Ducal Palace, Castel San Giorgio, Piazza Sordello, the squares, the views, the waterways and porticoes: everything evokes the harmonies of Giulio Romano and the splendours of the Gonzaga family. A unique city, with elegant architecture but on a human scale; one of the most beautiful in Italy. Any excursion to discover the city's heritage should include a proper break, and with cafés aplenty, you will find yourself spoilt for choice, thanks also to the city's rich culinary tradition: how can you resist a torta sbrisolona, a torta di rose or a torta Elvezia?
