Perched in the Lombardy region of Italy, Mantua is an ancient Italian city that’s so incredible to see. Plus it has a whopping history too, with it being well over 4,000 years old!

The last couple of weeks have been a pretty manic flurry of activity across multiple cities, as you can probably tell from our Instagram posts (all the deets are on there so I won’t rehash them on here).

There’s nowhere quite like Italy when it comes to ice creams (or gelato, as the locals would call it). Italy is renowned the world over for its ice creams and there isn’t a single city or town you’ll visit in Italy where you won’t find some homemade ice cream parlour.

Verona is easily one of the most under-rated cities in Italy! I’ve said it over and over again but I keep repeating it because it’s sooo true.
