Visit the ‘Sleeping Beauty’ city of Mantua, known in Italy as Mantova. This day trip from Milan shuttles you by train to the Etruscan lakeside city, which is also a UNESCO-listed spot. Ride by boat along the Mincio River to see Mantua’s Renaissance buildings from the water, and walk around the cobblestone city streets on a tour. The day trip also includes visits to two of Mantua’s must-see monuments — Palazzo Ducale and the marble-fronted Cathedral of St Peter — before the return to Milan.
