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!

Brescia as city and Piazza Paolo VI was something I didn't expect before I arrived. The combinations of different time periods next to each other makes it interesting! There are some terraces at the square to eat and drink something! I would really reccomend visiting...More

Did not have much expectation of Brescia as did not read anything about this beautifully town earlier. But once I came and discovered this beautiful Piazza, I remain Ed speechless. Worth to visit and spent few days there for sure.

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.

The new duomo is great, the old duomo next door is underground and better. Beware of Zona Traffico Limitato fines that will show up months later on your credit card.
