THE TOWN: Brescia, named also La Leonessa d’Italia is a rich industrial city between Lake Garda and the Valtrompia in the foothills of the alps, about 100 km east of Milan. It is less famous for its history and art than for its role as a primary manufacturing center. Brescia has a subway that makes it the smallest city in the world with an underground train system. For Lonely Planet: “Brescia’s core takes the form of a fascinating old town, which more than compensates for the city’s rather ugly urban sprawl. The old town’s narrow streets are home to some of the most important Roman ruins in Lombardy, and an extraordinary circular Romanesque church”.
