10 Photos to Inspire A Visit to Mantova

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!

          1. Well, I hold it with the MasterCard commercial 😉 “There are things you can not buy. For everything else there is a MasterCard”…I would kill for an Espresso in one of these cafes right now 🙂

  1. Aha! I’d never heard on Mantova but Mantua is a whole different ball game – I saw the photos on google where people are looking across the river to the town, bathed in golden light… beautiful 🙂 I’ve wanted to go for ages, so it’s good to know it’s hiding under a different name…

  2. Thanks so much for sharing. I am a huge fan of all things Italian so this blog post really appealed. I have travelled a lot in Italy but haven’t yet been to Mantova. This has really made me want to go there! Thanks for sharing. I have just started a poetry blog here on WordPress in case you have time to look? Have a good afternoon, Sam 🙂
