When walking through downtown, let yourselves be enthralled by Piazza Malavezzi and gaze upon the Cathedral, one of the most important Renaissance structures in the province of Brescia. Inside you will see Tiepolo's version of The Last Supper.
Afterwards, head to the Roman Villa, which in the early XXth century has brought to light 240 square meters of glass mosaics. If you have some spare time, go to the Rambotti Museum and the prehistorical items it harbors.
