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 the details of your Mantua holiday and any onward adventuring with our easy-to-use Italy vacation route planner.
