Brescia - Lombardy - Italy

And here's another.

Brescia is a major industrial and trading city in northeatern Lombardy. Home to approx. 180.000 souls with a metro area exceeding half a million people it lays on the edge of a plain between massive peaks and Italy's largest lake. Celtic, Roman and Romanesque, Baroque and Gothic, a mix of style and heritage.

Here we go














Capitolium (at the heart of what was Roman Brixia)




Via Musei, Santa Giulia Museum and the dome of S. Salvatore, a "Langbart" age church. Yes 1.500 years ago.




Via Musei, Restaurants





Walking towards the Venetian townhouse (yes, Brescia was part of the Serenissima, centuries ago.)





Old and new Cathedrals

Via Mameli, in the shopping district. Pallata Tower

You're welcome, just think that 90% of the cities you see in these pages are all along the same rail line

Italian cities are so various, even if they are not so far the one from the other. You can find some similarities, but each of them has its own style.
And in this section of SSC you can find the demonstration of what I say.
