The old town centre houses the largest archaeological area in Northern Italy, dating back to the Roman period.

Styles and architecture alternate with harmony; the narrow streets of the Medieval town, the severe lines of Palazzo Broletto, the architecture of the Duomo Vecchio and the Temple of St. Francis of Assisi, the Italian Renaissance of piazza della Loggia and the monumental piazza della Vittoria.

The Monastery of Santa Giulia has a superb collection of artefacts, sculptures, mosaics and relics from Roman villas and the Pinacoteca Tosio Martinengo art gallery is filled with art collections.

The province of Brescia is worth visiting, starting with Valle Camonica with its ski-runs and World Heritage rock engravings. Plus there is Lake Garda, (lago di Garda) with the Vittoriale degli Italiani monumental citadel, le Grotte di Catullo caves, la casa del Podestà stately home and the Sirmione spa complex. Lake Iseo boasts Montisola, Europe’s largest lacustrian island, and Franciacorta is famous for its wines.

Important events include major art exhibitions, la Mille Miglia vintage car race and The Fair of the Patron Saints: a characteristic and picturesque festival celebrated on February 15 in the streets around the Basilica of Saints Faustino and Giovita
