Brescia The Essential
Interesting
The major industrial town of Brescia lies at the foot of the Lombard Pre-Alps. It has retained the regular street plan of the Roman castrum Brixia, which once stood here. The town boasts numerous Roman, Romanesque, Renaissance and Baroque buildings and the magnificent Sant Giulia Museum. It is a pleasure to stroll around this elegant city, waste time on its café terraces or give into temptation in one of its many attractive shops.
