La Marasca is an apartment (self catering) in Mantova (or Mantua, if you like) and sometimes referred to as Alla Marasca. We stayed there for two nights in April 2006. We found it to be generally fully satisfactory.
http://www.lamarasca.it/
The apartment comprises two bedrooms and a large sitting room and a small kitchenette. It is on the floor one up from the street and the friendly and accommodating owner lives directly over. The building and immediate neighborhood are very quiet, There is an excellent restaurant , the Osteria dei Canossa, in the Piazza Canossa just a few steps from the apartment. It requires about a four-five minute walk to get to the central and interesting Piazza del Herbe, maybe 15 minutes to walk to the train station and not more than 25 minutes to walk anywhere in the historic area of Mantova.
The apartment is comfortable, but by no means elegant. The bed was good. The owner allows an option of renting only one bedroom and possibly sharing the center facilities with another lodger in the other bedroom, or just renting the whole place for the party in one bedroom, which is what we did.
If you fancy a quiet, private place in a quiet neighborhood of an old Italian city, at a fair price, then La Marasca deserves a look. There are not a whole lot of accommodations in the historic center of Mantova. I regard La Marasca as a preferred place to stay because it such a non-touristy integral part of this historically interesting city.

When we were invited to Mantua to attend a wedding in 2006 I could think of no better place to experience the heart and soul of Mantua than La Marasca. I had the good fortune to have stayed there on a previous holiday in Italy.

La Marasca is located in the historic center walking distance to all the interesting artistic and architectural treasures of Mantua as well as shops, restaurants and cafes.

We found the English speaking host very helpful and the space very clean and prepared for our stay.

We highly recommend on your next visit to Mantua to stay at La Marasca.

Stayed: June 2006

This is a self contained apartment in the old part of Mantova with kitchen, living room and bathroom. Its location is perfect and the hosts are very kind and helpful! The rooms themselves are clean and comfortable. This is a great place to base yourself for exploring Mantova!
