In October of 2020 I had the pleasure of spending several days in Mantova. I love this city! It is sweet to look back, especially when winter is upon us.
The Palazzo Ducale is splendid and requires at least a day to see all of it.
Doesn’t the architecture below look like London? To me, it does.
The Palazzo Ducale goes on forever and is bordered by a moat, then a viale, then a lake. It was well defended by water when it was built.
A detail of a moat.
One of the many foods for which Mantua is faros is the sbisolana. I tried it and liked it. It is a sweet confection. Somehow I am missing pictures of mine. Weird.
Below, we are back at Piazza delle Erbe.
The famous Rotondo di San Lorenzo.
