A boat trip Jan 23, 2017
Mantova has three artificial lakes created in 1190. There are lago Inferiore, lago di Mezzo and lago Superiore. The town had another lake that was dried in the 1700; lake Paiolo.
You can do several boat trips on these lakes.
I took a 1. 30 hours boat trip and I liked it much. There are also much longer trips than this.
In july - august you can see lots of lotus flowers on lago Maggiore. I could only see its leaves. I was on the lake in september. Several kinds of birds spend their winters around and on some islets on this lakes. There is also a good num ber of swans that are local residents of the lake area.
On my boat there was a very interesting commentary by a old man, about what we were seeing during our journey.
The boat had a cafe where you could by some presents; even the typical Mantovan cake sbrisolona was on sale and it was very cheap.
