What to expect

Take part in a private tour of two of the most prominent and captivating historical buildings in Mantua: the Castle of St. George and the grand Ducal Palace. Discover their interiors with your expert local guide and explore the rooms, the artwork and the history hidden inside.

St. George's Castle is the first historical building that you see when entering Mantua: built by Francesco Gonzaga, the castle was first meant to defend the city but later became the main residence of the reigning family. Today it's still one of the most important examples of Italian Renaissance architecture, as Andrea Mantegna painted the famous "Camera degli Sposi" (The Bridal Chamber).

After the castle tour, your guide will take you to the most characteristic square in Mantua, Piazza Sordello, and here you'll begin your visit inside the Ducal Palace. The palace was the residence of the Gonzaga family, but under the Austrian domination with Maria Teresa of Austria, it was called Palazzo Reale (Royal Palace). The palace was built over centuries, starting from the 13th by the Bonacolsis and then by the Gonzagas. You'll have the opportunity to discover all the parts, buildings, courts and gardens that compose the palace, all the while learning anectodes and intrigues thanks to your dedicated guide. Experience Mantua in a unique way and dive deep into its history.
