Museo della Seconda Guerra Mondiale del Fiume Po

The PO RIVER WWII MUSEUM is a centre devoted to the memory of the war events that took place in the areas along the great river during the Second World War. The museum collection includes moving images, photographs, documents, and historical objects from the period between the Allies' first aerial sortees in 1944 over the area and the victorious crossing of the Po river in April 1945. The geographical position of Felonica (Mantova) is crucial, in this context, in order to understand the unfolding of those events: because its position was central to the crossing paths of the retreating German troops and because it represented the Army boundary of the 5th US Army and the 8th British Army.

Teatro Bibiena

Reviewed By 968nicholash - London, United Kingdom

This venue started out in the 18th century as a forum for scientific discussions and meetings as well as a place for entertainment, but soon became a dedicated theatre. The interior is magnificent, with its soaring tiers of boxes surrounding a small stalls area. One of the first performances here in 1770 was a concert by Mozart, who was just thirteen at the time. It’s a small theatre, with a current maximum audience of only 363.

Interesting visit. Some spectacular displays from the average to the weird and wonderful. The giants room is impressive as is the grotto.

Rotonda di San Lorenzo

Reviewed By DamCar65

Just opposite the Basilica di Sant'Andrea is a lovely little chapel called “Rotonda di San Lorenzo”. The most ancient church in the city (11th century), inspired by the Holy Sepulchre Church in Jerusalem and dedicated to St Lawrence. Completely round with beautiful Byzantine frescoes. You can feel the history as soon as you walk in the door and also a great way to escape from the heat for a few minutes. A card (in various languages) is available at the entrance explaining several features. Very well worth a few minutes of your time.

We visited this basilica twice, and were fortunate the 2nd time to be given an extensive tour and oral history by one of the volunteer guides. As it was July 2020, there were very few people visiting.
