Mantova, otherwise known as Mantua, is a city and commune in the Lombardy region of Northern Italy. Organising car hire in Mantova is easy – visit our local branch in the city to get started. Mantua is surrounded on three sides by lakes, now dried up, which were created artificially in the 12th century as a defensive moat for the city. Approach Mantua from the bridge near Porta San Giorgio for a romantic skyline, cutting the domes and turrets with the shimmering water in front of them. Hiring a car in Mantova lets you explore this beautiful city with ease - a city often overlooked, but with the Renaissance richness of a miniature Florence.
