What to expect

Discover the Castle of Brescia with a private guide and taste the wine from the largest urban vineyard in Europe.

The castle overlooks the city from the top of the Cidneo hill. With its 75,000 square meters, it's the second-largest fortified complex in Europe.

Built on the site of an imposing Roman temple, whose remains are still preserved, the castle became a modern Venetian fortification during the Visconti reign.

With its drawbridges, towers and hidden passages, the Brescia Castle will take you on a journey through time: in front of a crenelated tower, you'll feel like a knight in shining armor.

The tour ends with a tasting of the wine produced in an urban vineyard located on the slopes at the foot of the castle, whose origins are recorded in a document dated 1038.
