Trip proposed by: Craig
The visit begins at the Brescia railway station – there is a metro stop and a large carpark nearby.
The walk covers much of the city centre. We will see marks left on the city by the Allied bombing campaign of 1944/45. These include air raid shelters, signs indicating such shelters and their emergency exits, hydrants for firefighters and physical signs of damage from bombs and bullets that are still visible today.
We finish the trip at the monument to those who died during the Allied bombing of the city. The railway station lies a couple of hundred metres away.
