The AI MUSEI Bed&Breakfast is right in the heart of Brescia’s old city centre, in the most ancient part of the city, just a few metres from the Roman Basilica and the Capitolium Temple, from the Santa Giulia monumental complex, Piazza Duomo and via Musei.
The classic old-village atmosphere is perceived to this day in this area of the city, where old shops can still be found among beautiful buildings: the delicatessen, the pasta shop, the tailor’s, the ironmonger’s shop, the pharmacy and the tobacconist, next to the antique shop or the jeweller’s or vintage clothes shop, near the bicycle repair shop.
By day there is the cheerful bustle of students of the Catholic University (whose campus is just a stone’s throw from the B&B), tourists and schoolchildren on visits to the city’s beautiful historical sites.
In the evening, the streets of the district come alive with people out for a stroll, music and merriment, and tables outside: themed evenings and shows are staged all year round in the squares or in the many restaurants and bars to be found in the centre.
The AI MUSEI Bed&Breakfast is the ideal starting point for a walk to see the city’s beautiful sites, which are clustered within a fairly small perimeter:
From this truly central position, you can easily reach any destination by using public transport such as buses (stop 300 metres away) and the underground (stop in piazza Vittoria, 500 metres away); from the train station, just a few bus stops away, you can set out on a short excursion to the lakes around Brescia (Lake Garda and Lake Iseo), or you can visit nearby Verona, Bergamo or Milan for a day trip (excellent service network with high-speed trains).
