Visit Mantua from Milan, with train transfers included

Mantua is the capital of the Mantua Province in Lombardy and, since July 2008, the city of Mantua together with the city of Sabbioneta have been included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. They are both united by the legacy left to them by the Gonzaga family, which made them the main centers of the Italian and European Renaissance. Located in the center of the Po Valley, the city of Mantua is surrounded by water and thanks to the Gonzaga family, the city is rich in cultural architecture and important artistic pieces, making it a hidden gem of the Lombardy region that you can discover on this day tour from Milan.
