The secrets and wonders of the River Mincio
Arrival in a holiday farm located in the area between Mantua and Porto Mantovano. Dinner with the surprising dishes of the Mantuan tradition and overnight stay.
At midmorning, we will go to Rivalta sul Mincio to visit the ethnographic museum of the Mincio valleys. This will be a valid starting point for the visit of the Natural Reserve, since it offers all the information necessary to understand the particular ecosystem and the century-old relationship between the Valley and its inhabitants. At the end of the visit, we will have lunch at a holiday farm and taste Mantuan traditional dishes. After lunch, we will board a silent boat for a truer and closer encounter with nature. By sailing along the river, we will reach the Santuario della Beata Vergine delle Grazie for a visit. Then, we will resume sailing and, through an intricate network of channels, will be back to Rivalta. From there, we will go back to the holiday farm. Dinner and overnight stay.
After breakfast, we will reach Mantua. There, we will take a guided tour of the city centre: this small but very enjoyable town, declared UNESCO heritage site together with Sabbioneta, offers several palaces, museums, churches and sites of interest to be visited. At the end of the visit, we will stop off at Dispensa Contadina to find local products that are the fruit of ancient knowledge and manufacturing techniques consolidated over time, a collective heritage of rural families and local communities. Return to the holiday farm.
