As the end of summer approached, we wanted to make one more day trip before the start of the start of the fall school schedule. When considering day trips from Milan, it’s hard to choose. There are just so many beautiful places to visit within a relatively short drive from Milan. A short drive in any direction from Milan will bring you to a beautiful place. We decided to head southeast to city of Mantua, a picturesque, small medieval town in Lombardy which is only a 2-hour drive from Milan.
