Mantova lies in eastern Lombardy, 155 kilometers east of Milan and 150 kilometers southwest of Venice. Much of the Mantova’s attraction lies in its Renaissance cityscape, which designation as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2008. The powerful Gonzaga family, who controlled the city and its surroundings during the Renaissance, had a major hand in the extension of the city during this period. Mantova also has several medieval buildings, among them an 11th-century rotunda.
