CIAO!

I hope you will enjoy your stay in Mantua, as far as Hotels are concerned I can tell you this:

SAN LORENZO: historical hotel placed in the very city centre. WONDERFUL location. High prices. (http://www.hotelsanlorenzo.it/index110.htm)

CASA POLI: very new and modern/sophisticated. Not so nice location... it is a bit further from the city centre (do not forget that mantova is tiny so do not worry: on foot in 10 minutes you go almost everywhere!) even though it is closer to the lakes. (http://www.hotelcasapoli.it/it/index.htm)

ARMELLINO: I do not know it but form the website it seems very nice (www.bebarmellino.it).

I have another suggestion for you: CASA SAN DOMENICO as I have been told it is really elegant and exlusive + in a good location (high prices though). (http://www.casasandomenico.it/)

HAVE A VERY PLEASANT STAY!

Travel Tips for Mantova

Mantova (Mantua) Cuisine

by deecat

Many foods are made in or around Mantova. One that we purchased is called "Sbrisolona", a cake made in Mantova. Now it is mass produced, but it can still be found handmade in bakers' shops,where we purchased ours. It is like a cookie & a cake combined & filled with Almonds. Delicious, but you need milk or some kind of drink with it because, like a crisp cookie, it needs moisture.

Another sweet made in Mantova, but by only one shop, is called "Palle di Rigoletto". It is a praline that commemorates Verdi's opera set in Mantua
.
Other pastry specialties are cakes called "Bignolata", "Pappa di Mantova", "Torta di Zucca", "Torta di Tagliatelle", & "Bussolani"
.
Also typical of the area is "Garlic Salami" produced by Mantuan factories who guarantee good quality. Excellent grilled or with rice.

Note: it does not keep well.

Cheeses that are eaten are "Grana Padano" Cheese (from left of the Po river) as well as "Parmigiano Reggiano" from right of the Po).

A typical menu includes "Tortelli", fresh pasta filled with pumpkin, which we tasted and thought was delicious. "Sorbir d' agnoli" is a popular dish which is usually served as a first course. It is a bowl of agnolini (meat ravioli) with broth and often a dash of Lambrusco!

"Risotto alla pilota" is another speciality. It is made with steamed Vialone Nano rice seasoned with minced pork or sausage fried in butter and Grana Padano or Parmigiano Reggiano. Risotto (rice) made with pumpkin, mushrooms, fish or shrimps is also popular.

We often saw "Luccio in salsa" on the menu which is a main course made of boiled pike served with a sauce made of pepper, capers, anchovies, and extra-virgin olive oil.

A little German influence"Cotechino con crauti" (pork sausage with sauerkraut) is also popular.

My favorite was a soup of bean and pasta (usually wide noodles).

Mantova (Mantua) has interesting cuisine, indeed.

St. George's Castle

by barrikello

This powerful castle is a wonderful example of urban fortification. It was erected in the 14th century to safeguard the access from the lake. It's squared planned with four big towers at the sides, surrounded by a deep moat.

Palazzo della Ragione and Torre dell'Orologio

by croisbeauty

Palazzo della Ragione, also known as Palazzo Nuovo, was built in 1250 after the adjacent Palazzo del Podesta to which it is connected by a passageway. Its present look is the result of modifications carried out by Luca Fancelli, who oriented the front of the building towards Piazza del Mercato. The palace was seat of the administration of justice in Gonzaga times.

The town of the Gonzaga

by Bjorgvin

This town in SE Lombardy on the banks of the Mincio river, where it flows into the Po river, is presumably more than 4000 years old; an small Etruscan village later conquered by the Romans. After the decline of the Roman Empire it was ruled respectively by Goths, Byzantines, Longobards and Franks, but became a free town after 1115. In 1273 Piamonte Bonacolsi seized power in Mantua, and his family ruled there for the next century. In 1323, the Bonacolsi clan was overthrown in a revolt and the city came under the sway of the Gonzaga family. The Gonzaga family would continue to rule Mantua until 1708, when the town came under Austrian rule, where it remained, with a short interval in the Napoleonic wars, until 1866, when Mantua was incorporated in a united Italy by the king of Sardinia. The town of Mantua and its environment is probably most famous for being the stronghold of the Gonzaga dynasty. The Gonzagas, made dukes of Mantua in the 1500s, are probably best remembered for being lavish patrons of the arts in their time. The ducal palace is still a revelation for art lovers.
