In the afternoon, visit the Museo Donizettiano (the tour includes multimedia stations dedicated to the famous Italian musician Gaetano Donizetti; it will be possible to complete the itinerary dedicated to the great composer by visiting his birthplace and the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore where his remains are preserved).
After the visit, you will reach Brescia in your own car. The lively center of the city will offer a variety of opportunities to have a good dinner in one of the most fashionable areas. Overnight at a 4-star hotel (name and position will be communicated upon confirmation of the package).

It's time to greet your hotel, after breakfast, but just a 30-minute drive from Brescia you can reach the biggest lake in Italy. Lake Garda is a treasure of landscapes and stunning views.
