As mentioned, Brescia is an old city and it has plenty of historic buildings. We can suggest you some of them worthy of a visit:

The Capitolium (Tempio Capitolino):

A UNESCO World Heritage site, the Capitolium was once the centre of the Roman city of Brixia (todays Brescia). It is part of an archaeological site that also includes a Roman amphitheatre and S.Giulia museum.

The Castle of Brescia (Castello di Brescia):

Called the “Falcon of Italy” because of its position on a hill overlooking the city. It houses the Luigi Marzoli Arms Museum as well as the Risorgimento Museum. Admission to the castle itself is free of charge.

The New and Old Cathedral (Cattedrale di Santa Maria Assunta, Duomo Vecchio):

Fun fact is that in Brescia there are two Cathedrals! The Old Cathedral was built in the 11th century. Construction on the New Cathedral started in the first half of the 17th century but wasn’t finished until 1825. They stand next to each other in Piazza Paolo VI also known as Piazza Duomo.

Lake Garda and Lake Iseo (Lago di Garda, Lago d’Iseo):

Lake Garda is the largest lake in Italy. Its wider part to the south is surrounded by morainic, while the narrow northern part is enclosed by the mountains that provide a very mild Mediterranean climate. Iseo Lake is in the Val Camonica area, near the cities of Brescia and Bergamo. It retains its natural environment, with its lush green mountains surrounding the crystal clear lake.
