Brescia is a rich city between the Garda Lake and the Trompia Valley (Val Trompia) (Alps)
+
Brescia is a rich industrial city between [[Lake Garda]] and the [[Valtrompia]] in the foothills of the alps, about 100 km east of [[Milan]].  It is less famous for its history and art than for its role as a primary manufacturing center.  The large factories produce weapons (including the famous Beretta pistols) and cutlery/kitchen accessories.  This industry has brought the city tremendous wealth and prestige in the past 50 years, to the point that an entire second city--the imaginatively named Brescia 2--has sprung up on the south side of the city's original boundaries.

Brescia is also the capital of the Lombardian province of the same name, which incorporates numerous beautiful and historic towns, the Valtrompia, and parts of the lakes.

Brescia has a very small airport located 20 Km from the city centre in Montichiari. It serves only 2 flights a day, 1 for Girona Barcelona and one for London Stansted ( both Ryanair flights). However you can reach Brescia from Milan Orio al Serio Airport which is in province of Bergamo (50 Km away) and it serves a lot of low cost airlines such as Ryanair, AirItaly, Transavia, MyAir, etc. Brescia is also easily reachable via Verona VillaFranca Airport (50 Km away) Milan Linate (100 Km away) and Milan Malpensa airport (150 Km away).

Brescia has a very small airport 20km from the city centre in Montichiari. It serves only few destinations: Girona/Barcelona, London Stansted (both Ryanair flights), [[Olbia]] (Sardinia), [[Rome]], [[Naples]], Crotone (all air-bee flights). However you can reach Brescia from Milan Orio al Serio Airport which is in province of [[Bergamo]] (50km away) which hosts several low cost airlines such as Ryanair, AirItaly, Transavia, and MyAir.

You can reach Brescia by any train from the expensive Eurostars to the cheap and slow Regionale commuter trains.  It is about an hour from [[Milan]] (costing €6 on the Regionale), and other cities including [[Bergamo]], [[Verona]] and [[Venice]] are within an hour or two.

Brescia is a very rich city and nobody except city inhabitants ( I mean in the small centre) and immigrant use the poor service of buses, everybody uses their own car, everybody respects the rules and the pedestrians.
+
The smallish historical center of the city has an autobus system that works well for inhabitants and other commuters.  Much of the rest of the area, including the [[Franciacorta]] wine district and nearby museums such as that of the [[Mille Miglia]] automobile race, is more easily accessible by car.
However Brescia has an underground system under construction that will make Brescia the smaller city in the world with an underground train system.

Brescia is home to several great museums.  However, since it is not a primary tourist city, very few English translations are provided, and even if they are, translations are often so poor that you may prefer to try the Italian explanations.
  
 +
*'''Tempio Capitolino''': Old Roman ruins, the last remains of what once was the city's forum during the Roman Empire, built by the emperor Vespasian.  Historical placards are well translated in English.
  
==Do==
+
*'''Old and New Duomo''': The unique pre-renaisance church has a massive stone dome and 12th century crucifixes.  Next door is the city cathedral, built 150 years ago, with the third largest dome in Italy.  The local hero is former Pope Paul VI, a native Brescian.  Don't expect good English translations.
  
 +
*'''The Castle''': Dating to pre-Roman times and last fortified by the Venetian overlords of the 16th century, the city's stronghold houses museums of armory and of the Risorgimento (Italy's first struggles for independence and unification), and provides eccelent views of the Valtrompia, the alps, and the city itself.
  
==Learn==
+
*'''Santa Giulia's cloister''': This museum and former convent houses a massive collection of art and archeology dating back more than 10,000 years and exploring the region's history from pre-history to Roman occupation to the Lombard invasion, etc.  The museums also contain foundational remnants of Brescian houses from various periods.  The permanent collection of religious art is one of the best in northern Italy, and the city prides itself in attracting traveling exhibits of excellent and prestigious collections.  It is currently displaying over 100 of [[Van Gogh]]'s early sketches, designs and paintings (2008-April 2009).  Some English translations will be found throughout the museum, but they will be inconsistent and poorly translated.
  
 +
*'''La Loggia''': The city hall and center of regional government, this large and oddly shaped building presides over the city's central square, where you'll often see political demonstrations, concerts, and markets.  You can enter the building and look around in the main halls, enjoying the architecture and decor, but it remains primarily functional.  The Loggia (lodge) also marks the northern end of the city's retail shopping district.
  
==Buy==
+
*'''Mille Miglia''': Until the auto industry made its dirty, cliffside roads, hairpin turns, and spectator presence far too dangerous, the Mille Miglia, which starts in Brescia, was one of the world's top automobile races.  Since it was discontinued as a real race 40 years ago (following numerous driver and spectator deaths), it has continued as a museum of automobile history.  The actual race, now a parade of refurbished and custom designed cars that slowly winds its way through 1000 miles of northern Italy, starts in May of each year.
  
 +
*'''Valtrompia''': Though police are beginning to crack down, the eponymous highway through the valley is home to one of Europe's largest centers for transvestite prostitution.  Travelers on a casual daytime drive will spot many of these and other more traditional sex workers, but look out--cars will often pull over quite suddenly, causing accidents.  This, and not the fact that many of the workers are kidnapped from eastern Europe and elsewhere and enslaved by unscrupulous pimps and drug dealers, is in fact the cause of the crackdown.  Sociologically interested tourists may find the drive quite fascinating.
 +
 +
==Do==
 +
Brescia is close to Lakes Iseo and Garda.  Travelers in possession of a car will find scenic drives there and elsewhere around the city.  The Franciacorta region south of [[Lake Iseo]] boasts opportunities to taste some of the finest (and most expensive) wines in Italy, as well as tour vineyards and cantinas.  Hiking and biking in the alpine foothills around the city are open to more physically fit and adventurous travellers.
 +
The city's medieval historical center, with shopping districts, open markets (try Via San Faustino and Piazza della Loggia on Saturdays), gelaterias, etc., is a good example of city life untrampled by tourism.  Travelers might find interesting that, due to the city's industry, Brescia is however a major immigrant center.  The Via San Faustino neighborhood, with its cheap housing for both immigrants and university students, is an example of cultural integration that you won't find anywhere else in Italy.
 +
 +
==Learn==
 +
If you are truly fascinated by the nearly endless parade of invaders that oppressed the city for the past 2000 years--the Romans, the Lombards, the Venetians, and the French, to name the longer-lasting ones--you'll find many historical sites and museums.  The city's collection of religious art is housed by several museums.  You can buy a yearlong, unlimited pass to the museums for 20 Euro, 15 for students.
 +
Brescia has a very old and well regarded university.  The medical school, due to its proximity to the large regional hospital, is particularly well regarded.  Brescia is not a common or canny destination for study abroad students.
 +
 +
==Buy==
 +
The historic center of the city has an active shopping district, with numerous clothing and jewelry stores.  City residents enjoy strolling through the stretches from the Portici (shopping porticos built literally on top of their similarly styled and utilized Roman antecedents in the heart of the downtown) to Piazza della Loggia.

Brescia is a city in Lombardy, Italy

Contents

Understand

Brescia is a rich industrial city between Lake Garda and the Valtrompia in the foothills of the alps, about 100 km east of Milan. It is less famous for its history and art than for its role as a primary manufacturing center. The large factories produce weapons (including the famous Beretta pistols) and cutlery/kitchen accessories. This industry has brought the city tremendous wealth and prestige in the past 50 years, to the point that an entire second city--the imaginatively named Brescia 2--has sprung up on the south side of the city's original boundaries.

Brescia is also the capital of the Lombardian province of the same name, which incorporates numerous beautiful and historic towns, the Valtrompia, and parts of the lakes.

Get in

By plane

Brescia has a very small airport 20km from the city centre in Montichiari. It serves only few destinations: Girona/Barcelona, London Stansted (both Ryanair flights), Olbia (Sardinia), Rome, Naples, Crotone (all air-bee flights). However you can reach Brescia from Milan Orio al Serio Airport which is in province of Bergamo (50km away) which hosts several low cost airlines such as Ryanair, AirItaly, Transavia, and MyAir. Brescia is also reachable from Verona VillaFranca Airport (50km away), Milan Linate (100km away) and Milan Malpensa airports (150km away).

By train

You can reach Brescia by any train from the expensive Eurostars to the cheap and slow Regionale commuter trains. It is about an hour from Milan (costing €6 on the Regionale), and other cities including Bergamo, Verona and Venice are within an hour or two.

Get around

The smallish historical center of the city has an autobus system that works well for inhabitants and other commuters. Much of the rest of the area, including the Franciacorta wine district and nearby museums such as that of the Mille Miglia automobile race, is more easily accessible by car. Brescia has a subway under construction that will make it the smallest city in the world with an underground train system. It is due for completion in 2013, although such schedules are dubious, and in the meantime tremendous traffic congestion is caused at station construction points.

See

Brescia is home to several great museums. However, since it is not a primary tourist city, very few English translations are provided, and even if they are, translations are often so poor that you may prefer to try the Italian explanations.

  • Tempio Capitolino: Old Roman ruins, the last remains of what once was the city's forum during the Roman Empire, built by the emperor Vespasian. Historical placards are well translated in English.

Buy

The historic center of the city has an active shopping district, with numerous clothing and jewelry stores. City residents enjoy strolling through the stretches from the Portici (shopping porticos built literally on top of their similarly styled and utilized Roman antecedents in the heart of the downtown) to Piazza della Loggia.


Eat

Try the true "bresciano" food, including casoncelli (called in Brescian dialect "casonsei"), homemade tortellini with beef, served with "Burro versato" (spilled Butter) and sage with sprinkling of Parmigiano. Try the polenta (in winter only) a mush made with durum wheat, Polenta taragna is mixed with homemade cheeses and butter.

Viselli's: A small bar with an ancient proprietor who owns the copyright to his cocktails. It's a must in Brescia to try the Viselli's Champagnone (very good but very strong). Near P.le Arnaldo. Look for the crowds and ask somebody. Borgo WÜHRER: lots of beautiful bars such as Nacio, Hico de puta, BW Cafè, Pappavero, and more.

Sleep

Because it's not a primary tourist destination, Brescia is a bit short on hospitality, especially in the budget range. You'll find a few budget hotels in shadier parts of the city, and some nicer ones close to the train station.
