I have been to Brescia several times and was unaware of this lovely spot. Magnificent churches, old and older side by side, marble fountain and hundreds of outdoor restaurant tables. Beautiful!

Bustling with people and activity, we sat and had a glass of wine, watched a wedding coming out and the priest addressing the guests, a street musician playing guitar and singing, a couple dancing soon joined by two mothers with strollers. A hive of activity...More

The former Piazza Duomo has two Cathedrals and a City hall. The Old and New Cathedral and Broletto. YOu just sit down on one of the restaurant terraces and enjoy the view.

There are not that many places to visit in Brescia probably. If I need to count two places, one is the castle and the other one is Piazza Paolo. Especially in the weekend, it is very lively there.
