I love going there since I was a child. Located on the Cidneo hill, you can enjoy a 360 degrees view of the city from different spots. Historically or artistically the place has no major relevance, but it's a perfect place where to relax, strolling, bringing children. They will love the steam locomotive that dominate the main garden. All the family can enjoy the functioning railway model that runs on Sundays. There are two museums.The museum of Arms host weapons from about the XII to the XVI century. The Museum of Risorgimento will tell you the story of Brescia and Italian reunification in the XIX century. Two cafes out of the main walls will serve you hot chocolate, drinks tea or a simple aperitif. If you come here by walking, be careful if you take the pathways from the west side (S.Faustino): especially at dusk this side may attract the wrong sort of people. The most pleasant way to get there by foot is to start from PIazza Duomo, take Piazzetta Tito Speri (stop in a cafe and get a ice cream or a fresh juice enjoying the place) and take Via Contini. A car park is available outside the main walls.
