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).
