Nestled in the heart of northern Italy, the Brescia region offers a captivating blend of ancient history, picturesque landscapes, and culinary delights.
My journey through this enchanting region revealed hidden gems with captivating sights from the moment I arrived at Bergamo Airport with Air Arabia.
A short drive away was L’Albereta, an exquisite resort tucked away amidst the rolling hills of Franciacorta. It was my home for two days and I felt enveloped in luxury and tranquility, surrounded by vineyards and lush greenery.
I was immersed in the serenity of the region topped by indulging in world-class cuisine, a massage in the spa, and savoring the stunning views of the countryside in the evening.
Venturing beyond the serene ambiance of L’Albereta, the Franciacorta Village was a shopper’s paradise with a delightful selection of renowned Italian and international brands, from fashionable clothing to stylish accessories. Naturally I treated myself to some well-deserved retail therapy.
The highlight of the day was discovering the lesser-known gem of Lake Iseo. The peaceful ambiance and pristine beauty of this breathtaking lake made it a perfect retreat as we sailed across the crystal-clear waters, taking in the picturesque surroundings, and stopping at Monte Isola, the largest lake island in Europe, for a leisurely stroll.
Exploring Brixia, an archaeological Roman area, was next on the agenda. It offered a glimpse into the ancient world while wandering through the well-preserved ruins, marveling at the intricate mosaics, and envisioning life in this once-bustling Roman city. The rich cultural heritage of Brixia is sure to leave you in awe.
Being a motoring enthusiast meant visiting the Mille Miglia Museum which pays tribute to automotive excellence. Here one can delve into the legendary history of the Mille Miglia, a thousand-mile race that captivated the world, admire the meticulously restored vintage cars and learn about the race’s iconic moments.
While in Brescia, I also enjoyed a beekeeping demo at the Borgo il Mezzanino Country House, learned about the fascinating world of bees and the importance of their role in our ecosystem.
The resident chef also delighted our taste buds with the sweet rewards of the honey produced on-site and later a dinner in a magical setting, complete with natural plants, lights and wholesome food.
My last two days were spent in EALA, a hidden gem nestled in the heart of the countryside and on Lake Garda. This charming hotel offers a warm welcome, comfortable rooms, and an amazing view.
Walking from EALA to Limone sul Garda and the Limonaia del Castèl was pure magic along the lake. The picturesque town of Limone sul Garda, situated on the shores of Lake Garda has quaint streets, lined with colorful houses and charming shops in a Mediterranean atmosphere. A visit to Limonaia del Castèl, a historic lemon grove that showcases the region’s agricultural heritage is a must.
The Brescia region, with its rich history, natural beauty, and culinary delights, offers a captivating journey for travelers seeking a truly unique experience. From the moment you arrive at Bergamo airport to your explorations of ancient ruins, tranquil lakeshores, and charming towns, Brescia will leave an indelible mark on your heart.
