Explore the top sights of Gonzaga’s Renaissance gem

Mantova is a delightful town wrapped in water and rich in beautiful architectural treasures. Its history is strictly linked to that of the Gonzaga family, who reigned in the area for over 400 years between the 14th and the 18th centuries, transforming Mantova into a Renaissance gem. After picking you up from your hotel in Verona, the driver will take you to the center of Mantova where you will explore all the major sights escorted by an expert local guide. The tour will include a visit to Palazzo Ducale, a huge complex featuring 500 rooms decorated with Flemish tapestries and glorious frescoes by Andrea Mantegna, and Palazzo Te, the 16th-century palace commissioned by Federico II Gonzaga for his own pleasures, featuring stunning rooms like the sumptuous Chamber of Cupid and Psyche with remarkable frescoes depicting the story of Cupid and his beloved princess Psyche.
