One of the best-preserved Roman Amphitheatres, it dates back to the first half of the 1st century B.C.
The historic centre of the city of Brescia is home to the rich and varied museum complex of Santa Giulia, based in the Benedictine convent of San Salvatore and Santa Giulia, founded in 753 B.C. by the Lombardian king Desiderio.
In 1921, the poet Gabriele D'Annunzio settled in Gardone Riviera at what is now called 'Villa Cargnacco,' later transformed by the Vate (Umberto di Savoia) into the monumental complex of the Vittoriale.
The eclectic composition retains all the splendour of its origins, offering visitors a chance to immerse themselves in another world, practically merging into the thoughts and fantasies of the original Pescarese artist.
In this magic place, it is possible to admire the Priory, which was the personal residence of D'Annunzio, the light cruiser Puglia, the Mausoleum where the Vate is buried, and the M.A.S. vessel, historic cars, gardens, and Amphitheatre. Every year, during the summer season, this open-air theatre hosts numerous performances of prose, music and dance.
