Compare Car Hire in Brescia

Brescia is a city in the Lombardy region of Italy, at the eastern end of the Val Trompia in the northern Italian Alps. Brescia's art, history, and culture, aperitivos under the porticoes, and shopping in its elegant boutiques make it the ideal destination for a city break away from the main tourist routes. Brescia, as an episcopal see, is home to numerous churches, a picture gallery (Pinacoteca Tosio-Martinengo), and a mediaeval museum, all of which are renowned for their artistic treasures. Artists from the Brescia school, who worked between the 15th and 16th centuries, are prominently featured. Brescia is definitely worth a trip, if only to see the City Museum, which is located in a complex that also includes a monastery, churches, Roman remains, and an art gallery. The province is also well-known for its production of Franciacorta sparkling wine and as the primary location from which Italian caviar originates. In 2017, Brescia and her surrounding area were designated the "European Region of Gastronomy." Book your Brescia car hire in advance with Enjoy Travel for a seamless trip!

Guide of Brescia


Brescia, both a city and a comune, is in Lombardy, a region in Northern Italy. It lies near the base of the Alps, not far from Garda and Iseo. The city ranks as the fourth largest in northwest Italy and as the second largest in the administrative region. Brescia is the provincial capital of one of the largest regions in Italy, with a population of over 1,200,000.

Climate in Brescia

Brescia has warm summers, very cold winters, and a consistently cloudy climate. The average annual temperature ranges from -1°C to 29°C, rarely falling below -6°C or rising above 33°C. For warm-weather fun, late June through late August in Brescia is peak time.


Brescia (known as Brixia in ancient times) was founded more than 3,200 years ago and has served as a major regional hub ever since. The mediaeval castle, the Old and New Cathedral, the Renaissance Piazza della Loggia, and the rationalist Piazza della Vittoria can be found in the city's old town, along with the best-preserved Roman public buildings in northern Italy.

Brescia has developed into a major industrial centre in recent decades. Mechanical and automotive engineering, as well as metallurgy and the production of metal parts, machine tools, and firearms, are of particular economic significance.

Things To Do in Brescia

Explore the Santa Giulia Museum

The Santa Giulia Museum, which is on the UNESCO World Heritage List, is housed within the Lombard Benedictine monastery complex. More than 12,000 items are displayed on 14,000 square metres in chronological and thematic order to trace the history, art, and spirituality of Brescia from around 2500 BC to the present day. Simple burials, modest Roman houses, walkways, ceramic kilns, and mediaeval frescoes, as well as artefacts of universal value such as the bejewelled Cross of King Desiderius, Roman era bronze head portraits, and antique ivory diptychs, all locally collected, attest to the area's long human habitation.

Learn about Brescia’s mysterious Underground

A tour of Brescia Underground will be an unforgettable experience as you learn how the two rivers, Bova and Celato, the arteries of the Leonessa of Italy, flowing beneath the city aided in its development and shaped the lives of its inhabitants from the Renaissance to the present day. With their preparation and passion, the highly qualified guides will assist you with their translation of the rich history of the area. You will be surprised to learn about the historic area's earlier topography as you traverse the underground tunnels crossed by rivers that once flowed on the surface. So, put on your boots and the helmet they provide, and go.

Discover Ancient European Arms at the Luigi Marzoli Museum

The Luigi Marzoli Museum of Arms, located within the Brescia Castle, houses a collection of antique European armour and weaponry. The extensive collection of swords, firearms, and suits of armour, as well as their artistic expression, attest to the ancient Brescian tradition of arms production and craftsmanship. The main collection received from industrialist Luigi Marzoli was supplemented by 300 nineteenth-century firearms from the civic collection. The development brought about in the 16th century by more effective weapons and more comfortable and lighter armour, as well as the 19th-century improvement in firearms and gunpowder firing mechanisms, are well displayed.

Eating Out in Brescia

Brescia has restaurants serving cuisines from around the world, ranging from Japanese restaurants to American steakhouses. Here are a few of our favourites. Ristorante Nineteen - 19 is unrivalled for traditional Italian cuisine and seafood. Their salmon goes well with cordial, lemonade, sherry, or wine. A pleasant atmosphere is enhanced by efficient service at both indoor and outdoor seating. The La Sosta is housed in a 400-year-old building in the city's historic centre. The Lombard flavour of the beef in oil or the pork fillet with dark scamorza will not disappoint. The Old Wild West will impress you with its cowboy bar, wooden interior, and perfect decoration. This international chain steakhouse resto-bar is well-known for its delicious hamburgers and steaks.



Brescia's domestic airport is Montichiari Airport, located southeast of the city. It is also served by Il Caravaggio International Airport, which is approximately 55 kilometres from the city centre. For transportation between the airports and the city, taxis, car hires, shuttle services, and bus transfers are available.

Getting Around Brescia

Brescia's points of interest are mostly concentrated near the city centre and in close proximity to one another. As a result, tourists usually prefer to walk. Longer distances can be covered by urban bus services. Provincial bus services and trains are also available for nearby locations. However, the majority of people, especially those who are travelling in groups, believe that hiring a vehicle is the most convenient way to get around the city. This is especially true for those who are staying in hotels. Hiring a car is the most convenient mode of transportation for vacationers who are pressed for time and include business travellers, honeymooners, families, and tour groups. Whatever your reason for travelling, we hope you have a great time planning your trip with Enjoy Travel.
