    Check you out, staying in a palace! This is one of the things I love most about Italy; you actually get to stay in a baroque architecture building! This sounds like a great and spacious choice for Brescia. The rooms are huge, and it’s a great idea to share your plans with the staff too; they always have good advice.

    I am a sucker for baroque architecture! I think the reason is that almost anything that falls within the scope of baroque winds up looking palatial. Seriously. That was my first thought when I saw your pictures. The onsite church looks pretty spectacular. I agree, if you can’t make it out into the town, hanging around your “palace” would satisfy any wanderlust!

    I’m in love with the architecture. Your photographs are amazing as are the interiors. I always make sure I book balcony rooms. They have a different feel altogether. To top it up, it must have been like a fairytale to live in a palace. Cheers!!

    Staying in Palace turned hotel must be giving you so royal feeling. Italian styled decor in a baroque architectural Palace is itself a beautiful experience. All parts of this palace are Instagram worthy. Frescoes in Church are really very beautiful and also this palace has impressive modern conference room.

    You had me at Palace! I would like to stay in this magnificent hotel – so convenient to be located within walking distance from the train station. Also, I love Baroque architecture style. If I ever visit Brescia, I’ll look no further than this gorgeous palace! Thanks for sharing, James – your posts are always helpful. – Ella

    I’ve never heard of Brescia but if there are 2 UNESCO sites then I would love to see them. The Paolo VI looks like an amazing place to visit, I’ve had a quick click through at the prices and I can’t believe how cheap it is to stay there. It would make sense to stay there and visit Milan, Garda Lake and definitely Verona on day trips.
