Set between Milan and Verona at the foot of the Alps, Brescia is the second-largest city in Italy’s northern Lombardy region, with just under 200,000 inhabitants. The city’s rich history dates back to pre-Roman times, when it was a Gallic capital. Among the many great local sights are the 11th-century "Duomo Vecchio" (Old Cathedral, also called "La Rotonda"), unique for its circular shape, the 17th-century "Duomo Nuovo" (New Cathedral) nearby, and the first-century Roman ruins at "Tempio Capitolino". Brescia is also famous for its lakes (Garda, Iseo and Idro) surrounded by mountains and vineyard-covered hills.
