Travel Tips

Mantova has long seemed to have something in the water that inspired artists and musicians. The Roman poet Virgil was born nearby.  The town was used as a setting of Giuseppe Verdi’s Opera, Rigoletto and was also the place of Romeo’s exile in Romeo and Juliet. Antonio Vivaldi wrote many of his most famous operas and concerti in the 18th century. Much of Mantova’s culture and wealth come from the days in which it was ruled by the Gonzagas, one of the most powerful families in Europe during the Middle Ages. Visit their primary residence, the Palazzo Ducale, in the city’s historic city center.
