Where all Mantua big attractions are just on a throw of stone, the magic is getting there from the Corso Umberto I, don't miss to buy an ice cream and just give a walk around checking all the nice buildings.

Piazza Sordello is the main and oldest square of Mantua, from one side closed with the Palazzo Ducale of Gonzaga family, from another with the cathedral and bishop palace. Once a week there is an open market with stalls.

Explore piazza Sordello any time of the day and experience its perfect proportions and airy feel. Planked by the Palazzo Ducale and the Palazzo Castiglioni (a highly recommended boutique hotel), it offers beautiful views.
