Guided walking classic tour of Mantua


The interested guest can enjoy a guided visit to the Ducal Palace considering the eight hundred years of history in the main apartments, rooms and private rooms that are connected by many corridors and passages. The Gonzaga' Court was highly considered by all the European Courts, calling artists like Pisanello, Andrea Mantegna, Giulio Romano, Rubens, and also musicians, poets and humanists. You will recall the magic atmosphere of this Court where the Gonzaga Lords welcomed Popes and Emperors.
