Mantua

Mantua ©
Often overlooked in favor of nearby Lake Garda, Mantua is one of northern Italy's Renaissance gems.
Palazzo Te and Duomo di Modena will appeal to history buffs. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Cattedrale di Parma and Piazza delle Erbe. Venture out of the city with trips to Rocca Meli Lupi di Soragna (in Soragna), Piazza del Comune (in Cremona) and Parma (Battistero di Parma, Monastero di San Giovanni Evangelista, &more). There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Basilica di Sant'Andrea di Mantova and sample the fine beverages at Acetaia Villa San Donnino.

For maps, photos, where to stay, and tourist information, go to the Mantua trip itinerary builder site.
