At the very heart of Brescia is a beautiful and elegant historical centre, witness to this city’s importance since Roman times, and in fact there are still important Roman remains here.
The City was a great setting for the recent European Wine Bloggers Conference (EWBC), as it was sponsored by the wine region of Franciacorta which neighbours the city. While I work on some wine and blogging related posts, I thought I would share some of my favourite photos of the city, that might encourage you to put it on your list of places to visit.
Of course I have to thank the Mayor, Adriano Paroli, and the whole Comune (but particularly Laura Castelleti and Giovanni Arcari), for making places like the Museo di Santa Giulia and the Loggia available to us.
I recommend it for the culture, the art, the food and of course, the great sparkling wines (but try a Pirlo if you are in town as well).
Hope you enjoy!
Here are some (unusual, maybe) favourites (and below is the full set):
