The route unfolds chronologically through the city’s main four squares: it starts from Piazza del Foro, which is overlooked by iconic monuments from ancient Brixia, such as the Capitolium, the city’s main temple. The tour continues in Piazza Paolo VI with the Romanesque cathedral, the so-called “Rotonda”, and the seventeenth-century Duomo Nuovo (New Cathedral). Next is Piazza della Loggia, with the splendid palazzo which is now the Town Hall, the lapidarium of Monte di Pietà, and the astronomical clock, finally ending with Piazza Vittoria, the work of Marcello Piacentini, overlooked by the first skyscraper in Italy.
After a break, the tour continues with an exciting walk through drawbridges, towers and tunnels, exploring the Castle, up to the Arce, its top part, to visit the exquisite collection of antique weapons and armour at the “Luigi Marzoli” Arms and Armor Museum. Information:
