We took a day trip by train from Peschiera DG to Brescia specifically to the Capitoline Temple. The walk from the station is some way, the area around the station not pleasant, but the town itself is lovely and the Temple well signposted. On my first glimpse of the columns I was frozen, they're amazing! We stopped to see the... 更多
Amazing! Do not forget to visit space under the Tempio with a great archeological treasures. There is an impressive view into a history of this temple with very nicely video about the time passing by and its impact to not only the temple but the whole town. Be careful.. do not step onto mosaic! :)
