While Brescia isn’t a tourist city it does offer a couple of attractions which you can see while there, starting with the Tempio Capitolino; these are the ruins of what used to be the Roman Forum built by the emperor Vespasian.
The city has two churches pretty much side by side, a very old one and a relatively new one. The very old one is a pre-Renaissance church with a massive stone dome and crucifixes from the 12th century and next to it there’s the considerably younger, 150 year old cathedral which itself features the third largest dome in Italy.
The city also features a very ancient castle, actually dating back to pre-Roman times, it has been used constantly and the last time it was fortified was during the 16th century when it was in use by Venetian overlords. Nowadays it houses museums dedicated to weapons, armor and Italy’s Risorgimento.
One museum is housed in what used to be a convent, the Santa Giulia cloister. The museum houses exhibits which date back ten thousand years ago and explore the region’s history through the various major stages it went through.
