10 Photos to Inspire a Visit to Mantova
Mantua is only about 2.5 hours away from Milan and 35 minutes from Verona and is a great spot if you want to be a little off the tourist track. The city is gorgeous and a great base to explore other towns of the region of Lombardy.
Mantua is famous for its exceptional palaces with even more exceptional works of art. If you’re in the city, don’t miss a visit to Palazzo Te and Palazzo Ducale. Mantua is also famous for great food (as is everywhere in Italy) with the famous sbrisolona- a delicious crumbly cake.
