At an hour of drive from our Hotel Locanda Ippopotamo in VeronaMantova is a very interesting historical city to visit at any period.

Surrounded by three lakes, Mantova, first Etruscan city then Roman, becomes the city of Gonzaga in 1328.

The most prominent places are the historic center where you have the most important buildings like the Palazzo Te, the Cathedral dedicated to St. Peter's, the Ducal Palace, Rigoletto's house and Piazza Erbe, where you can admire the Palazzo della Ragione.

For those who love shopping, however, after a walk in the historical center of Mantova, it is possible to make a jump to the only outlet in the area, the Mantova Fashion District, located near the exit of the tollgate of south of Mantova.
