Palazzo Castiglioni, timeless luxury in Mantua

Palazzo Castiglioni di notte

A unique atmosphere: this is what Castiglioni Palace offers its guests. In fact, nothing of the elegance of this historic residence was lost.  It once was  Baldassare Castiglione’s home, a writer and diplomat of the ‘500, author of ” Il Cortegiano “, a fundamental text of the Italian Renaissance.

Located in Mantua’s historic center, in Piazza Sordello, one of the most beautiful in Italy, this luxury hotel now features five stunning high-tech suites.

The two super deluxe room with trefoil windows overlook the Palazzo Ducale, and the fourteenth-century tower of the palace houses a suite in which stands the “Tree of Life”, a 24 feet high fresco among the oldest in Europe representing a non-religious theme. From the rooftop terrace of this suite you get a view on the entire town and its monuments. Royal bed, wet bar with Nespresso machine, kettle and fridge, living area, executive desk, TV with Sky Vision and complimentary Wi-Fi will make your stay at Palazzo Castiglioni an experience truly out of the ordinary.

Interni di Palazzo Castiglioni

Guests have the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful square during breakfast, which is served at the Sordello bar, just outside the Palace.

Spacious halls decorated with stucco and frescoes on the first floor are available for meetings and events. This is the owners private residence; they are direct descendants of Baldassare Castiglione and are still jealously guarding the precious manuscript of their ancestor.

Palazzo Castiglioni is a great starting point to visit Sabbioneta, ‘The ideal City’, that became a world heritage site together with Mantua in 2008. But also to organize horse riding, cycling or electric boat excursions through the parks of the Mincio. And to discover the treasures of Lombardia, Veneto, Emilia Romagna and Verona.

Venice, Cremona and Ferrara are easily reached by train and car.
