Mantova, located in the Lombardia northern region of Italy, is also referred to as Mantua. Noted for its palaces, churches, and castles and literature festivals. Many past literary greats have lived or worked in this region. It is capital of the province of the same name. Mantua is surrounded by artificial lakes created during the 12th century. Mantua is mentioned in William Shakespeare`s tragedy Romeo and Juliet. Romeo leaves Mantua and returns to Verona when he hears that Juliet, has died.
