From the lake to the mountains, among history, culture and natural paradises
From mountains, lakes, forests and panoramic trains, to villages, castles and the refined wine cellars of Franciacorta: the province of Brescia, the largest province in Lombardy, boasts an extremely varied territory, which stretches from Bassa Bresciana to Val Camonica. Here, visitors can enjoy a rich variety of experiences.
Do you love nature walks, water sports or cycling? Between Lake Garda and Lake Iseo, you will be spoilt for choice, with cycle paths suitable for all proficiency levels and the scenic “Treno dei Sapori” (Flavour Train), aboard which you can discover typical local products. History buffs can travel back in time to the Middle Ages by visiting Brescia Castle or discover the fascinating Camuni civilisation the Naquane National Park of Rock Engravings in Capo di Ponte. We also recommend visiting the Villa Romana in Desenzano del Garda and the historic town centre of Sirmione.

Visitors who want to indulge in a little relaxation are sure to love the thermal baths of Boario and the healing water of Sirmione. Skiing enthusiasts can choose between the Pontedilegno-Tonale Ski Area and the Borno Ski Area, between Val Camonica and Valle di Scalve.
