If you choose this option, we'll go on a two-hour tour of Mantua's historic centre. Our first stop will be the Doge's Palace courtyards and gardens to discover the Gonzaga family's legacy.
Then, we'll walk through the old town, crossing medieval squares such as Piazza Broletto, where the Palazzo del Podestà and the Arengario arch are located. The route will take us to the Basilica di Sant'Andrea, designed by the same architect who conceived the façade of the Basilica of Santa Maria Novella in Florence: the celebrated Aberti.

Mantua Tour + Doge's Palace (3 hours)
On this tour, we'll visit the interior of the Doge's Palace and not just its gardens. Did you know that it has often been described as a palace-city because of the large number of buildings it houses? It holds over 35,000 square metres of surface area!
One of the structures that will call your attention the most in the Doge's Palace is the San Giorgio Castle, where a real Renaissance jewel is hidden, the Chamber of the Spouses or Camera degli Sposi. We'll reveal all the details surrounding the colourful 15th century frescoes.

Constructed as a recreational location and following the model of the ancient Roman villas, the Te Palace was designed by one of the most outstanding students of the famous Raphael: Giulio Romano.
