We took a day trip by train from Peschiera DG to Brescia specifically to the Capitoline Temple. The walk from the station is some way, the area around the station not pleasant, but the town itself is lovely and the Temple well signposted. On my...More

Look from the street, it has the best view. The entrance fee of 4 euros each is to expensive for whats on offer, and the interior of the building is limited and disappointing. The A/V presentation (if working) is poor and uninformative.

The staff was very absent at this place. They had one of the worst made videos I have ever seen, which you have to watch before you go into the room with the recovered Roman paintings, which will not impress you if you have been...More

A fascinating place hidden inside the historic centre of Brescia. The grounds are free to explore and very photogenic. I didn't enter the museum but it is worth a quick visit, just for the facade. The number one thing to visit In Brescia forsure. I...More

It is a must see for those who go to Brescia, especially for those who are passionate about history and archeology. The complex was the result of Emperor Vespasiano, it is a great testimony of the Roman empire of the first century. D.C .. Declared...More

It's free to enter the site and wander at leisure up the steps. We didn't enter the museum but a short walk up the street allows free viewing of the outdoor areas at the back. Brescia is a beautiful city and there are ample street...More

This one seemed to be getting mixed reviews here on TripAdvisor. And I think I can see why, if you’ve been to those beautifully restored theatres in Pompeii, Orange etc than this could be underwhelming. I thought that it was nevertheless wonderfully atmospheric. It’s debatable...More

It was the first time when I saw Roman ruins. I was staying and wondering how beautiful and strong they build it and how impressed Roman culture. The level of reconstruction is perfect and the place is just in the center of a city. I...More

Every town seems to have a roman ruin but this is well restored, documented and a stones throw from the beautiful piazzas and good restaurants of Brescia

The Tempio Capitoline E Piazza del Foro is something you should visit while being in Brescia! It's amazing to imagine how it was back then. When you stand there it has a impact on you to think about the age of it!

It is possible by walking, if you wan't to walk from the city center (which is closer) take the metro from Stazione to Vittoria and walk the last part.
