A great man, a great passion: Tazio Nuvolari
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.
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. Afterwards, we will visit the Tazio Nuvolari museum that displays his inseparable yellow jersey, his steering-wheels and the famous turtle given to him by D`Annunzio.Lunch at your leisure. In the afternoon, we will stop off at the monumental cemetery to pay homage to the Flying Mantuan.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. Dinner and overnight stay.
After breakfast, we will go to Castel D’Ario, Tazio Nuvolari’s birthplace, where you can take a pleasant walk along the remains of the Castello Scaligero walls. Lunch at a holiday farm: the menu will include the typical rice dish of the area - the “riso alla pilota” - whose name comes from the operators working at traditional rice huskers (the establishment where rice is cleaned, processed and prepared for consumption).
Return to the holiday farm.
