    Santa Giulia is part of a beautiful path. Starting from the Capitoline Temple a path from ancient Rome with medieval Christian grafts and later: a feast for the eyes and mind.

    Museum really very well organized. Notable exhibits. You must have at least 2 hours to see everything.

    So you stay when you see this Unesco site/Museum ... There are testimonials from various eras, from the Romans to the Renaissance, passing through the dark ages ... Extraordinary high Lombard Goldsmith's opera the cross of Desire and the Church of Santa Maria in Solario where is exposed ... The whole site with other churches and Roman villas are extraordinarily important. ... Worth seeing, take half a day to visit it! And the other half a day to visit a little town which is surprising in its confidentiality. ...

  • One of the most ancient museum I had ever been to. Most of the things I saw dated back to 70 AD. Very interesting and worth visiting.
  • Excellent; spectacular frescoes. Not crowded at all.
  • This museum is made on a 12 century monastery and describes the its history. Also, this is the history museum of the city of Brescia.
  • Amazing collection and especially the location
  • This museum is a must see, a walk in time more than 20 centuries long!
