While visiting the Lake Garda area, we spent a day in Brescia, which included the castle. The lower castle area is easily accessed by car, but otherwise there is a bit of climbing to do if you want to reach the upper levels. The castle...More

This Castello is located high up above Brescia but you can easily drive or walk there from the centre of town. It is free (other than the two museums located in the castello) to enter. One disappointment is that certain parts were blocked off due...More

This place is fantastic if you have small children (but also for a romantic walk in the park). Certainly not comparable with famous castles elsewhere, it is really huge and full of wonderful corners and paths where children can play out their fantasies, run around...More
