The northern Italian city of Mantova is an enchanting historic city surrounded on three sides by lakes. Piazza del'Erbe, Mantova's central piazza, is one of the most stunning in all of Italy - it's a lively square where both locals and visitors congregate.

Also known as Mantua, you might remember that Romeo came here after he was banished from Verona after killing Tybalt.
Besides its artistic and historical treasures, Mantova excels for its food tradition and the for availability of enriching activities--from the boat excursions on the lakes surrounding the town to the spring jazz festival to the literature festival that runs each September.
The Palazzo is still owned by the descendants of Baldassare Castiglione, a 15th century Italian courtier, diplomat and author. Learn more about this important historical figure.
