The fortress at Mantua no longer exists in its entirety, however the outlying village of Citadella is built upon where it once was. You can get an idea of its size by looking at the surviving - and massive - gate.

Mantua was one of the four key defensive Austrian strongpoints in northern Italy - known as the Quadrilateral - the others were Peschiera, Legnano and Verona.

A park near the centre of Citadella is where Andreas Hofer, the Tyrolian revolt leader, was executed in 1810.

You can also spend some time looking Mantua's beautiful architecture.
