Mantua is a thriving productive centre on the Padana Plain, whose land is shaped by the slow and sinuous courses of its rivers, the Po and the Mincio.
The calm, expansive waters of the latter envelope almost the whole city. The environs of Mantua are graced with many parks and thickly wooded areas, where a variety of rare flora and fauna can be found. Towards the north the gently sloping hills of Garda rise unexpectedly, which not only bave natural beauty, but also historical interest.
On the atmospheric lakes of Mantua tourist boats follow the lower course of the Mincio (the only Italian river that is navigable all year round). These boats pass by San Benedetto, Revere, Ferrara over to Venice and into the Adriatic Sea.
