Mantua and Sabbioneta
Mantua, capital of the domains of the Countess Matilde di Canossa a thousand years ago, and going back still further in time to the Etruscans, Romans, Lombards and Carolingians, Mantua offers the visitor a wonderful experience of both art and beauty.
From the Romanesque churches to the magnificence of the Gonzaga court, the "city, encircled by water" resplends with monuments and personages of the highest calibre: works by Pisanello, Mantegna, Titian, Cima da Conegliano, Rubens, Leon Battista Alberti, Giulio Romano, to name but a few, have left their mark in the history of art. In addition, there are also the treasures of the Ducal Palace and of the Museo Diocesano which together represent an artistic patrimony of the highest quality.
Tasso so rightly wrote in 1586: "... this is such a beautiful city that it is worth the thousand mile journey to visit her".
