Mantua (Mantova in Italian) is a little gem in North Italy. It is one of Italy’s UNESCO World Heritage sites and was also the European Capital of Culture in 2016. Only 2.5 hours away from Milan, it is a great base to explore other towns of Northern Italy and also happens to be strategically close to Verona and Bologna. For art lovers, this town is a paradise because of Palazzo Ducale and Palazzo Te. Read more on it here.
Mantua is also famous for great food (as is everywhere in Italy) with especially sbrisolona– a crumbly cake. If you want to be a little off the tourist trail, Mantua is the place for you! If you search on Trentialia.com it is Mantova. (The Italian name)
Mantua is gorgeous and these photos will show you why!
