It is a must see for those who go to Brescia, especially for those who are passionate about history and archeology. The complex was the result of Emperor Vespasiano, it is a great testimony of the Roman empire of the first century. D.C .. Declared...More

This one seemed to be getting mixed reviews here on TripAdvisor. And I think I can see why, if you’ve been to those beautifully restored theatres in Pompeii, Orange etc than this could be underwhelming. I thought that it was nevertheless wonderfully atmospheric. It’s debatable...More

Every town seems to have a roman ruin but this is well restored, documented and a stones throw from the beautiful piazzas and good restaurants of Brescia

The Tempio Capitoline E Piazza del Foro is something you should visit while being in Brescia! It's amazing to imagine how it was back then. When you stand there it has a impact on you to think about the age of it!

An amazing place. There are a lot of Roman ruins in Italy, but this was something special. It was reconstructed very nicely, and there were absolutely no tourists!

This is a temple in the heart of Brescia, it's beautiful and not a lot of people know about it. It's the heart of the roman ruins in Brescia, along with Piazza del Foro. Via Musei is basically Brescia's cultural center. I highly recommend everyone...More

It is possible by walking, if you wan't to walk from the city center (which is closer) take the metro from Stazione to Vittoria and walk the last part.
