Car Hire Mantua (Mantova)

About Mantua, Italy

Mantua (Mantova in Italian) is the capital of the province of Lombardy in Italy. It lies in the heart of a triangle formed by Milan (188km), Venice (155km), and Bologna(113km). Rent a car in Mantua and you are deep in a region defined by its natural beauty and rich culture and history. Mantua's old town and Sabbioneta were declare a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2007, and the legacy of the ancient Gonzaga family has made Mantua an artistic, cultural, and musical centre, not just in Northern Italy, but in Italy as a whole.

Mantua plays an important role in the history of opera, premiering Monteverdi's Orfeo ed Euridice. It is also where Shakespeare's Romeo was exiled, and marks the birthplace of the Roman poet Virgil, who is honoured with a statue in the Piazza Virgilio. The city is brimming with historical treasures, palaces, and elegant reminders of the medieval and Renaissance periods. Historically, Mantua can trace its origins back to Neolithic times, with ancient human settlements identified near Barche di Solferino and Bande di Cavriana, Castellaro and Isolone del Mincio.

Mantua is protected on three sides by man-made lakes, installed in the 12th century, as the city's defence system. These lakes are Lago Superiore, Lago di Mezzo, and Lago Inferiore ("Upper", "Middle", and "Lower" Lakes). Lake Pajolo used to lie on the fourth side of the city, but it dried up toward the end of the 18th century.

I am just contacting you to thank you so much for making car hire both a cheap and pleasant experience. This was the first time I had used your company and not booked directly through the car hire company and it will not be the last! I was delighted to find that everything was in order and the car was superb! It could not have been easier or cheaper - not even by booking directly!!
