The province of Brescia is one of the vastest in Italy

and offers all the different nuances of tourism, all the tones of an ideal holiday. There is no sea, but there are lakes with typically coastal features, there are mountains, hills and variegated plains. It has 44 museums and three UNESCO sites (the Rock Art Park in Valcamonica, the Roman-Lombard museum complex of Santa Giulia, the lake-dwelling sites of the Alps) as well as libraries, picture galleries, castles, churches dating back to different ages and art galleries. Brescia is excellent in every sphere of interest. One can casually go from the world of engines (with the worldwide famous race Mille Miglia) to that of food-and-wine connoisseurship (with the wines of Franciacorta, Lugana, Garda Classico and Valtenesi). A great Province, divided into seven territories: Brescia and its hinterland, the Camonica Valley, the Trompia Valley, the Sabbia Valley, the Sebino-Franciacorta area, Lake Garda and the Lowlands (la Bassa).

The destinations of recollection

There are plenty of cultural itineraries, poetic sites and literary spots. The destinations of history and culture, Along the same steps as great travellers of the past, writers and artists, go from medieval hamlets to castles in the lowlands, to glimpses of lakes, to peninsulas like that of Sirmione, to places like Montisola, the largest lake island in Europe. And then rivers, mountains, valleys and lakes, in endless fascination.

UNIQUE AND MEMORABLE TASTES

One can also describe a land with the excellence of its table. Brescia can delight every palate with its renowned wines (the “sparkling” Franciacorta, Lugana, Botticino, Groppello), lake fish dishes, cheeses (Bagoss from Bagolino), salamis (salami from Montisola), ancient spits, the Brescian way, the “concia” cornmeal, stuffed pasta.

THE PLACES OF TASTE

For those who love quality wine, the territory of Brescia has hundreds of companies and cellars that have been cultivating the land and vineyards, throughout the centuries, with undiminished passion. The sector of food-and-wine connoisseurship boasts products of international importance, in areas which are, alone, a passport to the pleasure of the palate: Franciacorta, Valtenesi, Lugana on Lake Garda and cultivated plots of land and limited productions ranging from the Lowlands to the mountain areas.

DESTINATIONS OF THE ACTIVE PROVINCE: THE POETRY OF WORK

Agriculture plays a leading role in a cultural tradition that has its origins in the past. It is in the Brescian area, with agronomists like Agostino Gallo and Camillo Tarello, that the modern art of cultivation, field rotation and analysis of the soil developed. Then there is the art of the lemon-houses, of terraces cultivated in the sun of northern Garda, of olive groves on the Benaco and Sebina coasts, farmhouses in the Lowlands.
