Brescia is Lombardy’s second biggest city, a university town with a modern business satellite – Brescia Due – it is prosperous and lively. Located between two of Italy’s most famous lakes, Lake Garda and Lake Iseo, Brescia is often overlooked by visitors who bypass the city itself and head straight to the undeniably beautiful lakes. A great pity, as Brescia has one of the most beautiful historic centres in the region, and some of the best Roman and Lombard remains in northern Italy.
