  • Worth it to visit since I did not seen anything like it in Europe. Been there twice and will revisit again. Brescia is even a clean, nice and quite city.  more »
  • We went specifically to attend a concert (musical moment of recollection, as said by the priest) of the choir of the Conservatory of Parma; the Cathedral is charming, it is round, simple plan, many frescoes have been eaten by time but you can breathe the historical period. Definitely worth visiting. Council summer because inside is really very cool. Linger for a concert becomes an act of devotion

  • If there is something that stands out in Piazza del Duomo thats definitely the old cathedral. Characteristic with its circular shape, you will be amazed at the simple beauty and delicate Interior. During your visit you'll come across a "secret", rich in vaults and columns to get lost. Don't forget to admire the frescoes on the walls. In short: take some time to visit this gem.
