In Photos: Exploring Italian Renaissance in Mantua
28 April 2016
A walk-through some photos of Mantua, Italy, and its Renaissance history…
It’s so easy to take Italy for granted.
So easy to stroll across its centuries-old cobblestone piazzas, look past frescoes older than the United States of America, rush by history-laden buildings, intricate details, corners, nooks, and crannies.
It is upon this historical landscape we move through our new world, relegating it all to background decoration.
Yet when you stop, pause, and take another look around, you fully understand why Italy remains the destination with the highest number of UNESCO-protected World Heritage Sites (50+) and a country you have to explore at least once in your lifetime.
