Tourism Mantua, tips for visiting Lombardy

Tourism Mantua. The Italian Capital of Culture 2016 and its surroundings offer plenty of attractive opportunities for tourism in Lombardy with workshops, exhibitions, museums, bike tourism and great cuisine for who are visiting Mantua for their vacations. 


The Province extends over an area between the Veneto and Emilia Romagna Regions, while the rivers Mincio, Oglio and Po go across it.


Although the local scenery is mostly plain, it is possible to gaze upon its pleasant moraine hills, making it one of the most peculiar destinations for tourism in Lombardy.  


This border territory safeguards thousands of years of history, art and political independence. A land full of villas, palaces and cities built following on Renaissance ideals.        .


Nature lovers will be thrilled in visiting Mantua and the natural reserves of Castellaro Lagusello, Bosco Fontana and the Bertone Park. The reserve of Le Bine, Torbiere di Macaria and Lanche di Runate is an authentic oasis for outdoor tourism. 


Mantua's Wine and Flavors Trail is 300 km long, ideal to embark on a culinary journey that will enthrall your senses with its traditional dishes and ancient recipes. 


 Consider visiting if you wish to enjoy a fulfilling, unforgettable vacation in a unique corner of northern Italy.
