A bit disappointing
Sep 2019
When I got close to the ruins, I realized how little of it looked like the original parts. So much of it looks like fillers. I'm glad someone filled it in so visitors can get an idea what the original structures looked like. But I'm not sure it's accurate for reviewers to say how "well-preserved" these ruins are.

Best in Brescia
Sep 2019 • Family
Definitely best place in Brescia city centre, and with Castello best attractions at all. Remains from the Roman time are very well preserved.

Initially hidden treasure, now open to public
Aug 2019 • Family
Imagine what else must be hidden in Italy and elsewhere... one bit of column triggered the digging, finding a superb temple complex, still including the mosaics, but more amazingly the frescos from Roman time! And then the temples, and walk on to the Roman theatre, still partially covered by later time (medieval/renaissance) palace. Worth every euro!

What a treat to walk around the corner and find this here- spectacular!! Small museum for whose entrance you pay but if you have any appreciation for ancient history, go!! Can wander around and take lots of photos.

Fascinating Roman site with excellent domestic mosaics and decorated wall
May 2019 • Solo
A very interesting small park of Roman ruins of what was a large temple and amphitheatre. The remains of the rooms and villas in the lower area are fascinating with some terrific mosaic decorations, and two thousand year old painted and decorated walls. Well worth a visit.

Best of Brixia continues here- UNESCO Site
May 2019 • Solo
After a superb visit to the Santa Giulia, more delights to follow.
The wonderful temple and outside areas can be admired without charge but a visit inside brings the whole park to Roman life again.
Entrance is 8 euros but included with the Brescia Card or Abbonamento Musei Lombardia card which I used continually during my two weeks in the area.
The AV presentation explains the history and the reconstruction of the temple.
Fantastic collection of combs, coins and tools.
The underground chambers with their massive mosaics and frescoed walls are impressive (between 89 and 75 BC I think).
Out now to the main temple for the Sculptures and Hall Of Furnishings and Decoration. The vast range of Roman tablets on display are due to the fine quality limestone found in Brescia (only bettered by Rome of course and Aquileia).
Welcoming staff and special thanks to Lugana for answering my questions.
Great experience not to be missed .

Incredible temple
Apr 2019 • Friends
A very interesting museum, for a small fee, you can enter a republican temple with fully preserved frescoes from the 1st century BC. - wonderful
In addition to the temple there is also a preserved part of the old Roman theater.

Make sure you do the tour and visit the underground frescos - its worth it -it's hard to comprehend that we were standing where the ancient Romans stood 3,000 years ago

Incredible historical monument
Feb 2018 • Solo
The monumental area of the Roman Forum, which is considered to be the best preserved group of roman public buildings in northern Italy. I entered the archaeological site (ticket was 4,5 reduced price) and began the tour of the underground republican sanctuary, dating to the 1st century b,c, with amazing mosaic floor and wall frescoes comparable to those in Pompeii. Then back up and out to see the Capitolium dating to 73 a.d., the primary temple of the roman city, dedicated to the Capitoline Triad dating to 73 a.d, with many columns still standing and a dedication to emperor Vespasian. Next to that was the roman theatre, one of the largest in northern Italy, but still mostly underground and below other buildings.
