    If you are in Brescia and has completed the urban travel, take advantage of the ascent to the castle to enjoy the views of the city. The set does not have much value but is nice walk and views. If you went by car, beware of traffic restricted to the back areas.

    The Castle, externally, it is maintained very well. It is worth climbing to the top on foot to admire the panorama of the city of Brescia. It is not possible to visit the Museum where there are exposed to internally except armor.

  • Splendid castle with a view over the town. Antique, but the exterior is open to the public, which makes it a great place for a stroll above the polluted metropolis. There's also a museum with arms (and art, of course) but it's not necessary to see those to feel impressed. If only navigating around the castle was easier (it took some time to find the best views), I would rate this place higher. With the trees in the way, finding a good vantage point took time, but it was worth it. It must be beautiful in spring...
  • The castle is located almost on city center, over the hill with a very nice view of Brescia city and around. It has access by car or bus. You may also walk through the trails. The castle itself is nice, with many buildings composing it.
  • Beautiful view and such a great place to learn and meditate about the past.
  • Worth exploring, much larger than you may imagine!
  • It is a beautiful place with a nice view over Brescia and it has two amazing museums. An antique weapons museum and a miniature italian railway museum. You shoul definitely see both of them.
