What's Mantua Like?

The Dukes Gonzaga and their lineage shaped the cityscape of Mantua beyond recognition. Mantua had been a flourishing Roman town, where the poet Virgil was born in 70BC, and medieval Lordships had subsequently transformed the Roman settlement into a bustling Medieval burg. However, the Gonzagas redefined Mantua's look, imprinting it with the timeless princely splendour that visitors so admire today. In 2007 the Old Town was elected as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. A must-see while in Mantua is, naturally, the imposing Palazzo Te, planned and completed by Renaissance genius Giulio Romano in 1535 for Marquess of Mantua. Apart from this architectural treasure, visitors should explore the Medieval cityscape of Mantua including the San Andrea Basilica, the Palazzo Ducale and the house of celebrated Renaissance painter Andrea Mantegna.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Mantua

The people of Mantua are warm, down-to-earth and practical. They will do their best to make international visitors feel at home and, being a small centre, it is relatively easy to establish a routine and discover the best places to go to eat, drink and be merry. A word of advice though: some conversational Italian would really go the extra mile in making foreign tourists feel at home and enable communication with the locals. To blend in, eat and drink like a Mantua native. Sample the excellent local wines such as the hearty Lambrusco Mantovano (a full bodied red) and the Garda Colli Mantovani Cabernet. Then head to the trattorias and small restaurants in the town and travel to surrounding areas where agriturismo spots abound (rustic but charming farmstead restaurants). The local cuisine is rich in pasta dishes and soups like Agnolini, pumpkin Tortelli with sardine bigoli, and Salame Mantovano.
