Bologna, Mantua, Ferrara, and Parma

Explore Bologna's highlights including its Pinacoteca Nazionale which tells the story of painting from Giotto to Raphael to the Carracci and Guido Reni.

In Ferrara, heart of the d'Este family, we'll see the Palazzo Schifanoia with the affreschi which inspired Ali Smith's How To Be Both.

In Mantua, visit the Palazzo del Te with its imaginative affreschi by Giulio Romano and

the sprawling Palazzo Ducale where the Gonzaga family commissioned great artworks like Mantegna’s affreschi in the Camera degli Sposi. 

In charming Parma, we'll see, amongst other highlights, the Pinacoteca with works by Leonardo, Correggio, and Parmigianino.

Note: the exact order of the days will be decided nearer the time.
