What to Expect
Mantova surprises visitors with its exceptional character. Small but spectacular, from every corner the city of offers an encounter with history and beauty, as you’ll see on this 2-hour walking tour.

Settled by the Etruscans, Mantova is surrounded by natural beauty. The city enjoyed a position of status in the early modern world that was further underlined by its association with Virgil, the great Latin poet, who was born in this territory.

From the Middle Ages Mantova was ruled by the Gonzaga dynasty, one of Italy's great Renaissance families that promoted art and culture. Mantova rapidly became an important buffer region between Milan and Venice, attracting great artists including Petrarch, Mantegna, Correggio, Rubens, Monteverdi, Giulio Romano, and many others.

In 1707 Mantova was seized by the Habsburgs, ending the rule of the Gonzaga family.

Shakespeare's Romeo heard of Juliet's death in Mantova, and Verdi used Mantova for the setting of his opera Rigoletto.
