Know More about this tour

The origins of Mantua date back to the Etruscan time, when Mantus was a god of Hades. Here was born the great Latin poet Virgil (Publius Vergilius Maro 70-10 B.C.). Visiting Mantua, walking along the old town heart is like stepping back in time.

Taking part in this private walking tour led by an expert local guide, you will have the chance to explore downtown Mantua and get to know its history, the most important monuments, palaces and square which represents the real soul of the town.

You will see St. George's Castle, built by Francesco Gonzaga between 1395 and 1406, which became one of the most important examples of the Italian Renaissance when Andrea Mantegna painted the very famous Camera degli Sposi (The Bridal Chamber).

Your guide will take you to visit Piazza Sordello, the main and most ancient nucleus of Mantua. This is where the town was born and this square still represents the most important place in town, with its dome (Duomo di mantova), Palazzo ducale and the other palaces dating back to the Middle Ages.

Amongst the other attractions, you will also see Piazza delle erbe (The Herbs Square), which represents the main market place in town since the Middle Ages, it also still hosts part of the weekly market on Thursdays. Here you can admire the beautiful Palazzo della Ragione (the palace of justice) and the oldest church in town, called La Rotonda, that was built back in 1082.
