Travelling from Brescia
Brescia perfectly represents the true soul of Lombardy: history, legends and traditions are inextricably linked to the laborious nature of its inhabitants that
make it one of the main production and economic centres of Italy.
Manufacturing, textile, chemical and wine industries make this area an exceptional attraction hub of primary economic importance but also, undoubtedly,
The fact that the roar of the engines of the legendary Mille Miglia was born in Brescia is no coincidence. Once famous for its loyalty to
the city of Venice, and because of this, nicknamed The Lioness, the city has a very ancient past, which is even today documented by numerous traces of Romanesque
and Lombard times that have earned it UNESCO recognition.
The area of the Roman Forum
We start on our tour right from these places, a real archaeological park scattered throughout the city. In the heart of downtown, you will have the feeling of
walking through ancient Rome. Everything is gathered around the monumental area of the Roman Forum, once distant from the city's main square with its portico
and its shops, where the Capitolium, the Republican Sanctuary and Roman Theatre, which was unfortunately damaged by an earthquake in the fifth
century, the Basilica and the Lombard monastic complex of San Salvatore-Santa Giulia all stand facing each other.
It is a fairly long hike, 14,000 square metres between sacred art and historical finds dating back to the first century AD. To name a few, the Basilica of
San Salvatore, the choir of the Nuns, the church of Santa Maria in Solario, the Domus dell'Ortaglia with the Viridarium and the Cross of Desiderio.
The Castle of Brescia
The Castle of Brescia, a mediaeval fortress poised overlooking the entire city with its grandeur awaits you just after the visit.
Built between the 1300s and the 1600s, the Castle is the permanent seat of the Museum of Arms and annually hosts numerous events and exhibitions plus the summer
The symbolic squares and the Church of San Francesco
Just a few steps and you will reach Piazza della Loggia, a magnificent urban area surrounded by sixteenth-century buildings including the Palazzo
della Loggia. This is a Renaissance building and today is home to the municipal council located in the homonymous square. Also nearby you can admire
another square and the symbol of the city: Piazza Duomo or Piazza Paolo VI. Here, spiritual and temporal power contrast in the buildings present
in a triumph of architecture that extends from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance: the Broletto, Torre del Pegol plus the old and new Cathedral. In the evening,
the square comes alive with youths who populate clubs and bars enlivened by music and street artists.
Also in the area, continuing along you reach Teatro Grande, one of the most important in northern Italy. The nineteenth-century building stands
out for its magnificent interior, with a spectacular large room, richly frescoed and decorated plus five orders of boxes. Not to be missed is its minor stage,
a small Rococo jewel where you can witness the more exclusive representations immersed in the golden stucco.
Among the numerous ancient churches to visit, we point out the Church of San Francesco, a thirteenth-century building still in perfect condition
in Romanesque and Gothic styles. Here you can still breathe the typical asceticism of the monastic order and the severe and austere atmosphere of the time.
Dominated by a magnificent rose window, the church's portal leads inside with a beautiful colonnade whose aisles are frescoed in the Giotto style. Do not miss
a visit to the sacristy and the two adjacent cloisters.
We conclude our tour with Piazza della Vittoria and Piazza del Mercato. The first was designed in 1932 and is a perfect example of fascist
architecture, where the grandeur and rigour of the forms dialogues with the bas-reliefs of the Arengario. The second dates back to the Renaissance and was
destined for commercial exchanges of fabrics and merchandise. Nowadays, it is still home to a lively marketplace and cultural events.
And now, perhaps you want to relax pleasantly? We recommend the old district of Carmine, a labyrinth of tiny streets in the downtown embellished
by churches, mediaeval buildings, places of great charm and excellent inns for gourmets.
