Mantova, Mantova


It’s the prime time of year for getaways. Unfortunately, my holiday is now over and I will be sharing the photos very soon. (Promise!) In 2008, I was lucky enough to spend a semester abroad and one of the day trips we took was to Mantova (Mantua).  Typical of many tiny towns in Italy, Mantova is absolutely packed with history and culture, but has it’s very own ‘feel’ to it. Another powerhouse (along with Florence and others) of Renaissance art and architecture in the Palazzo Te, Palazzo Ducale, and the great church designed by Leon Battista Alberti.
