Brescia

The beauty of Brescia, the Lombardy town which reserves many surprises: the Castle; the archaeological area of the Capitolium, the Forum and the Theatre; Piazza della Loggia characterised by a strong Venetian Renaissance influence and the Clock Tower; Piazza Paolo VI with the Broletto, the Old Cathedral and the New Cathedral; Piazza della Vittoria designed in the 1930s; the underground world unveiled by the Brescia Underground Association, and then its squares, restaurants, typical gastronomy.
