These are only a few reasons to venture to Mantova which happens to be only 2.5 hours away from Milan. For art lovers, this town is paradise because of places such as Palazzo Ducale and Palazzo Te. The latter is counted as one of the most beautiful villas in Italy and is worth a visit for sure. Read more on it here.

Mantova is also famous for great food (as is everywhere in Italy) with lots on the sweet front such as the sbrisolona– a crumbly cake famous of the city. If you want to be a little off the tourist trail, Mantova is the place for you! The city is known Mantua in English but if you search on Trentialia.com it is Mantova. (The Italian name)
