  • 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.

  • Amazing castle, beautiful and old. Great view when you reach to the top. Some benches on the way to take a rest. Famous towers that you can climb to their top and have an amazing landscape like the picture.
  • Incredible castle. Great views of surrounding area. Castle itself is in good upkeep and is free to walk around the huge area. Arms museum is also quite good and was only 3 euros for students.
  • It is perfect to do a tourist visit: you don't have to pay but still quit good enough. Inside it you can find a museum of weapons and another of the Risorgimento (they need a ticket). There are also many good spot where you can see the city from above!!
  • Nice place for a walk and sometimes there are also nice events. The venue is beautiful and the view on the city from above is impressing
  • One of the prettiest thing to see in Brescia. Otherwise the city would be a dump.
