This is an excerpt from the book “One Day Mantova from Milan‘
This extraordinary city, founded perhaps by the Etruscans, was then romanized (Vergil was born in the nearby Andes) and finally, after a period as a commune, became a fief of the Bonacolsi and then of the Gonzaga (1328-1707), who made it the beautiful capital of their principality. The River Mincio closes it on three sides in the form of a lake, and to those approaching it from the north, the city presents a striking skyline of towers.
