10 Photos to Inspire A Visit to Mantova

Mantua (Mantova in Italian) is a little gem of a town in Northern region of Lombardy. 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 and 35 minutes from Verona, Mantua is a great base to explore other towns of Northern Italy. 

Apart from it’s famous works of art such as the Palazzo Te and Palazzo Ducale, Mantua is also famous for great food (as is everywhere in Italy) with the famous sbrisolona- a crumbly cake. If you want to be a little off the tourist trail, Mantua is the place for you!

  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 🙂
