You may already know that it has been declared the Italian culture Capital for 2016 thanks to the precious heritage left by the Gonzaga family, turning it into the centerpiece of Renaissance. It is certainly worth heading towards Sabbioneta, a small city it shares this title with, built in compliance with the principles of the urb ideale proposed by Humanism.
Enter Palazzo Te’s Giants Chamber and get involved in a battle of gods. The talent of Giulio Romano makes the corners, walls and ceilngs in the room disappear, making you feel diminutive in comparison to such a godly spectacle.
You can book a seat at one of the Bibiena Theater shows and take a walk among the streets where Giuseppe Verdi set his work, the Rigoletto.
If you love nature, explore the Mincio Park and you may even watch a white stork nestling in the area.
Discover the urban center by foot, go cycling on the surroundings or by boat on the lake waters. Make time to taste dishes like pumpkin tortelli, risotto or sbrisolona cake.
This will only be the beginning of an unforgettable vacation in Mantua.
