Palazzo Baldesar is a 12th century palace in the heart of Mantua. This hidden gem that was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2008. The palace offers wonderful, unique accommodations that combine ancient grandeur with modern luxury. Palazzo Baldesar is the oldest palace in town and is located just across from the legendary Palazzo Ducale.

Mantua is just south of Verona and the Veneto region, less than 30 minutes from Verona airport. Besides its artistic and historical treasures, Mantua excels for its food tradition and wide range of choice in activities from boat excursions on the lakes surrounding the town to the bicycle tracks connecting the town to Lake Garda. This is a region rich in both culture and nature, conveniently located close to Bologna, Venice and Milan. There are many possibilities for excursions, including visits to Verona, Sabbioneta and Lake Garda (40 minutes), or Cremona, the town of the violin makers (1 hour). Personalized excursions and guided tours of the area can be organized on request.

Guests enter the palace through the massive wooden doors and pass along an elegant courtyard where they can park their car, although it is also possible to stay at the palazzo without a car.
