The Northern Italian city of Brescia is a dramatic setting at the foot of the Alps adjacent to Lake Garda. Visit Brescia as a base to explore nearby Lake Garda and the mountains - car hire in Brescia is a good idea for this. Or stay central to see the religious buildings and Roman relics in the town.
Brescia Castle is built on a plateau near the centre of town and stands out as a landmark from which to recognise the city. After that, hiring a car in Brescia will open up the rest of the region for exploration.
On arrival, it's advised you make the steep climb up to Brescia Castle as a means of getting your bearings via the panoramas on offer at the top. Then perhaps explore places like the Duomo Vecchio or San Salvatore a UNESCO heritage site, for a taste of the atmospheric and unique religious buildings that help define the city.
Lake Garda is just over half an hours drive away on the A4, so hiring a car in Brescia is a worthwhile addition to your trip's itinerary. You can rent a car in Brescia from one of our outlets in the city and enjoy the drama of Lombardy.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
