Description of Tour

Mantua surprises its visitors by her exceptional character. Small but spectacular, from every corner the city of Mantua offers an encounter with history and beauty. It's surrounded by beautiful environment, in which water and earth are unexpectedly interwoven. Settled by the Etruscans the city enjoyed a position of status in the early modern world. 1198 the city optimized the Mincio river, creating the so-called "four lakes". From the Middle Ages it was ruled by the art-loving Gonzaga dynasty, one of Italy's great Renaissance families who protected art and culture. Mantua rapidly became an important buffer state between Milan and Venice, and attracted leading lights such as Petrarch, Mantegna, Rubens, Giulio Romano. In 1707 Mantua was seized by the Habsburgs, ending Gonzaga rule.
