Brescia

Brescia is a historic city located between Milan and Verona. It is known as the "Lioness of Italy" (Leonessa d'Italia) after ten days of popular uprising that took place in the city in the spring of 1849 against Austrian rule. The old town is set out in historic squares, with lanes intersecting at right angles, a peculiarity handed down from Roman times. The old part Brescia is known as 'Centro storico'.
