Jul 02, 2018 354

Brescia is a city located at the foot of the Alps in Lombardy Italy. The city has had a fascinating history going back centuries. Even before it was conquered by the Romans in 225 BC, it already had a lot of history behind it. The signs of this history can still be seen everywhere in the old town of Brescia, although, the new town doesn't have much more to offer. The town and most of its attractions tend to get very crowded with visitors as well as locals, especially in the peak tourist seasons so visiting the city in off seasons is the best thing to do.
