Sleeping Beauty

Often overlooked in favor of nearby Lake Garda, Mantua is one of northern Italy's Renaissance gems. Its lake-encircled location has prohibited further expansion, helping to maintain the city's romantic, medieval charm. The historic old quarter, a highlight of Italian architecture with its mix of Renaissance palaces and picturesque plazas, has been named a World Heritage Site. Admire the splendor of the Gonzaga dynasty by touring the 500-room Ducale Palace and gardens. Tour the Basilica di Sant'Andrea, with its magnificent facade and a high dome that adds to the city's dramatic skyline. Plan your holiday in Mantua and other destinations, from the rural, to the urban, and everything in between, using our Italy sightseeing planner.
