Tignale » Information » Mantua

Mantua, situated in the centre of the Padana Plain, bordering with the provinces of Verona and Brescia, and with Lake Garda, has been recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2008 and is a city rich in artistic and natural heritage. Museums, monuments, good food, nature trails, exhibitions, festivals and numerous cultural events are just some of the reasons to visit throughout the year.

The city of the great Latin poet Virgil owes its culture to the Gonzaga family, who, from the fourteenth century onwards, gave a strong cultural and artistic impetus to the city, making it one of the most active centres of the Italian Renaissance and outlining the current urban and architectural structure.
